Afro Yaqui Music Collective
Afro Yaqui Music Collective
In honor of women's history month, join The Afro Yaqui Music Collective for a celebration of women warriors in jazz and new American music. The Collective will be collaborating with the legendary Pipa virtuoso Min Xiao-Fin, whom the The New York Times has called "a pipa player like no other," and the Village Voice proclaims has "taken ancient Chinese string music into the future." Soprano Gizelxanath Rodriguez will be singing repertoire that traverses Peking Opera, Indigenous languages and the jazz-blues tradition, while emcee Nejma Nefertiti will contribute words and rhymes that reflect and challenge the times.

The Afro Yaqui Music Collective will also be performing works by the late, guggenheim award-winning Fred Ho, whose revolutionary Moneky Orchestra combined grooving jazz-funk with Peking Opera styles and wild improvisation. The band includes alumni from Fred Ho's bands as well as a new generation of musical visionaries.
