Tomorrow he's bringing a few friends back with him for "Black Strings -- Uncensored." For one night only, Flory-Barnes will jam with vocalist Cristina Orbé and cellist/bassist Paul Rucker. The three will be backed by the band Big World Breaks. Their performance is part of a series by the Central District Forum for Arts and Ideas, taking a look at African American string artists and composers.
