On Wednesday 8.5.2024 we are looking forward to a very special performance by SHABAKA supported by eX.II at the Emmauskirche, Berlin.
SHABAKA’s work transcends conventional notions of genre and draws from a vast pallet of cultural influences. Whilst he’s undeniably a pioneering voice in the renaissance of British Jazz, his remit is much broader: he has also performed classical concertos with world-leading orchestras; led several hugely influential bands (Sons of Kemet, The Comet is Coming, Shabaka and The Ancestors) and has recently released a critically lauded solo album; Afrikan Culture, a work of exceptional beauty and urgency, focussed around the eastern Asian instrument, the Shakuhachi, of which Shabaka is a major exponent.
Driven by instinct and curiosity a playground where anything goes and all is welcome, eX.II brings together the vibes of spoken-word/song, free energy and ethno-groove. eX.II draws influence from spirits like Abbey Lincoln, Gil Scott Heron, Sidsel Endresen, Björk & Leon Parker. ex.II is a collective sound created by Sera Kalo- v, Nick Dunston- db, Dylan Greene- d, perc., and Marius Max- s, fx.
