Afro Asian Music Ensemble – April 23rd

AFRO-ASIAN MUSIC ENSEMBLE
Thursday April 23   7:30 pm   $16 advance/$20 door   All-ages

First Unitarian Church, 605 Morewood Ave., Shadyside

Playing the music of Chinese-American jazz composer Fred Ho

Tickets on sale at Acoustic Music Works (Squirrel Hill), Caliban Books (Oakland), Dave’s Music Mine (South Side) and Sound Cat Records (Bloomfield).

The Afro Asian Music Ensemble is the product of over three decades of Fred Ho’s revolutionary and multicultural musical and theatrical productions. Consisting of Royal Hartigan (drums), Masaru Koga (alto sax), and Ben Barson (who wields Fred Ho’s own Mark VI Baritone Sax), and other notable alumni from Fred Ho’s bands including Wes Brown (bass) and David Bhindman (Tenor Sax), the ensemble represents the core of Fred’s compositional legacy. Fred wrote for this 6 piece ensemble for the majority of his career, combining groovy mixed meters bass lines with Chinese percussion, Korean operatic tuning systems, and infectious funk — all set to agitprop titles with uplifting references to the people’s struggle for liberation and dignity!
