Christian Scott + Maisha
Ever-inventive and relentless trumpeter Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah combines instruments ancient and modern, acoustic and electronic — and some completely new — in a genre-splitting new vision of Stretch Music.
Following his electrifying sold-out Scala show at the EFG London Jazz Festival, this Grammy-nominated artist returns with a new band, new album, ‘Ruler Rebel’, the first record from his new series The Centennial Trilogy. Detailing a new vision and sound for Scott and his band, ‘Ruler Rebel’ promises an audio adventure in a way listeners never heard before.
Stretching the work of Trap music with West African beats and New Orleanian styles — ‘Ruler Rebel’ will speak to a myriad of issues from xenophobia to gender equality, evaluating the social political realities of the world using sound.
