Kahil ElZabar and the New Ethnic Heritage Ensemble
The NEW Ethnic Heritage Ensemble, ever evolving New Black Music combo led by the tireless multi-percussionist jazz innovator KAHIL EL' ZABAR, draws the most talented musicians from around the country while staying true to its revolutionary heritage and roots from Chicago and the AACM (Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians), America's longest running independent Black musician's collective. Now, with the versatile trumpeter COREY WILKES, one of the most inventive and freshest horns on the scene, along with the solid and sonorous baritone saxophonist ALEX HARDING (in the tradition of his master mentor Hamiett Bluiett), the trio returns to EastSide and the Bay Area to remind us that Black music is always at the spiritual core of spearheading a New Reconstruction of American culture.
Please join us before and after the set at the EastSide Annex - for refreshments, book & music sales, hanging out with good company, and possible jam session after the set. The Annex is adjacent to the Cultural Center space and will be open before (starting at 4pm) and after the concert.
