Afro Yaqcui Music Collective

August 14 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
An Die Musik, 409 N Charles St
Baltimore, MD United States
+ Google Map

"The Afro Yaqui Music Collective is nothing short of pure, uncut sonic radical love. These extraordinary artists have returned this thing called ‘jazz’ back to its real roots—to the earth, to the sky, to the women who produced and protected a people’s culture. Ben Barson, Gizelxanath Rodriguez, and the crew have committed to making liberation music—which is to say, music without borders or boundaries; future music from the well of the past that’s always on time; joyful music that swings and sings and sometimes stings but always keeps us dancing toward freedom. Follow them. Don’t miss them. An encounter with the Afro Yaqui Music Collective may be the most inspiring musical experience of your life."

Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Thelonious Monk: The Life and Times of an American Original
