Migrant Liberation Movement Suite

October 11, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$25

Presented by New Hazlett as part of the Community Supported Art Performance Series

Fusing soul and science, this multicultural jazz performance suggests that climate change is driving mass migration. Afro Yaqui Music Collective unites the music and stories of climate refugees from Mexico, Syria, and West Africa through jazz, dance, and theatre. Can we sow today’s revolutionary garden for tomorrow’s liberation?

THE AFRO YAQUI MUSIC COLLECTIVE

An indigenous-jazz band led by Gizelxanath Rodriguez and Ben Barson. With members in Pittsburgh, New York City, and collaborators from Tanzania to Cuba, the collective has a truly global vision rooted in the radical vision of social justice embedded in Afrodiasporic and indigenous cultures. The Suite will feature music by Barson, Hadi Eldebek and Samuel Okoh-Boateng, dance and choreography by Peggy Myo-Young Choy, and libretto by Ruth Margraff.
