Fusing soul and science, this multicultural jazz performance suggests that climate change is driving mass migration.

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.
