Sat., Jan. 15, 9 p.m.: BAMcafé Live hosts an artist praised by Tunisian mystics because of his proficiency at sonic healing. Haitian-born house music pioneer Richard “Earthman” Laurent—whose sounds have turned up on everything from national TV commercials to HBO miniseries soundtracks—is a talent. Together with his slick Afrobeat ensemble, the Earthman Experience—and anchored by the indefatigable DJ Hard Hittin’ Harry—Earthman’s musical medicine goes down with ease, and with plenty of groove to spare. Part of BAM’s 25th Annual Brooklyn Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
