Gig Information

An evening that will challenge and charm.

Motivated by the spiritual and practical value of art, Ambrose Akinmusire aspires to create richly textured emotional landscapes that tell stories of the community, record the time, and change the standard.

On a perpetual quest for new paradigms, Ambrose masterfully weaves inspiration from other genres, art and life in general, into compositions that are as poetic and graceful as they are bold and unflinching. His music is an active response to societal divides, the way our politics hold us emotionally hostage, and the ever-growing list of black lives ended by structural racism.

A powerful performance of genre-defying music, that sits within the centre and at the periphery of jazz, while intersecting the circles of hip-hop and classical music.

Supported by the New Zealand School of Music Big Band.
