Epic poetry set to powerful music, brought to life by a cast of legendary performers: Ask Your Mama is an original musical setting by four-time Emmy®-winning composer Laura Karpman, of the 1961 masterpiece by Langston Hughes, delivered with majesty and magnetism by sopranos Janai Brugger and Angela Brown, hip-hop innovators The Roots and Medusa, jazz vocalist Nnenna Freelon and others, conducted by Grammy® nominee George Manahan. Ask Your Mama premiered to a sold-out Carnegie Hall in 2009. It has since played from Harlem s Apollo Theater to the Hollywood Bowl, and has reached millions more through media coverage by NPR, PBS, NBC TV, The New Yorker, and the Huffington Post.
