Sun Ra Arkestra

Sun Ra was one of the greatest and least known jazz artists of the last four decades. Composer, bandleader, pianist, poet and Afro-Futurist philosopher, he founded his Arkestra to take jazz into unexplored territories – his style drawing simultaneously on black vaudeville, modern dance, Egyptian cosmology, Eastern philosophy, surrealism, kitsch, and the Bible.

The Arkestra performs today led by 95-year young alto saxophonist and long-time Ra collaborator Marshall Allen. The mischievous brass blasts and the grooves keep rolling, as the big band – fully dressed, as usual, in space capes with a hint of Ancient Egypt – takes off once again in a joyous burst of tightly organised madness.

‘One of the most disciplined yet free thinking collectives of 20th century music’ The Quietus

Urban Shaman Attack

We are Urban Shaman Attack, or USA, from Wilmington, Delaware. Our multi-genre music is the soundtrack for the movie happening now. Composed of drums, guitar, horns, and keys.. our psychedelic sounds and introspection bridges the gap between the jam band scene, jazz, and experimental.
