The headliner for the event is none other than the GRAMMY® Award-winning drummer, producer, educator, activist, NEA Jazz Master, and 2019 Doris Duke Award recipient Terri Lyne Carrington, who will debut her new band Social Science and confront social justice issues with the eclectic collaborative double album Waiting Game on Motéma Music.

Joining Terri Lyne Carrington are Claudens Louis & the CieL Experience and Oriente Trio. Claudens Louis combines the styles of R&B, swing, hip-hop, and traditional Haitian music to create a sound rooted in the harmonies and improvisation of the American jazz tradition. Eddie Balzola, on the other hand, is a Cuban-born artist, composer, and guitarist who debuted his funky world fusion band at the famed Snug Harbor Jazz Club in New Orleans in the mid-90s. ORIENTE’s bluesy jazz and soul, seasoned with Afro-Cuban & Caribbean rhythms, and Balzola’s melodic guitar style, was unique, fresh, and colorful.

The Sankofa Jazz Concert promises to be an unforgettable night of music, culture, and community in the beautiful Wendell A. Narcisse Performing Arts Theater at the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center at 6161 NW 22nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33142. Plenty of paid parking. We like masks if you do. (Miami)
