Sun Ra Arkestra

Thursday, February 17, 2022 9 PM Zankel Hall
Sun Ra Arkestra by Sibylle Zerr
Space is the place! The Sun Ra Arkestra, under the longtime leadership of founding saxophonist Marshall Allen, is as vital and cheekily unpredictable as ever. Blending jazz and blues with electronic and extraterrestrial influences, these true pioneers of Afrofuturism carry on the inimitable vision and spirit of their enigmatic founder—composer, pianist, bandleader, poet, and cosmic philosopher Sun Ra. Joining the Arkestra for this festival performance are two equally irrepressible guest artists who are carrying on Sun Ra’s torch, each of them a prolific collaborator across numerous perceived genre boundaries: cellist, composer, and polymuse Kelsey Lu; and poet, composer, and Black Quantum futurist Moor Mother.
