Featuring Douglas R. Ewart and Wadada Leo Smith

Douglas R. Ewart and Wadada Leo Smith join forces to present an evening of music drawing upon their work as inventive composers and master improvisers melding sound from the traditions of the African Diaspora, Australia, and Asia. A Minneapolis-based artist, teacher, and multi-instrumentalist, Ewart performs on reeds, flutes, percussion, and handcrafted instruments often made of found and obsolete materials. Trumpeter Smith directs the African American Improvisational Music program at the California Institute of the Arts and is the leader of Golden Quartet, Silver Orchestra, and Organic.

Additional program sponsorship provided by Unit One/Allen Hall
