Hyde Park Art Center and Sacred Jazz Institute presents
The Sebau in concert at United Church of Hyde Park (1448 E. 53rd Street)
in conjunction with the current exhibition, Bill Walker: Urban Griot
The Sebau is the most recent project of the Chicago-based composer, saxophonist, and conceptual artist, David Boykin, whose work, like Bill Walker’s artwork, also expresses the contemporary Black social consciousness in America. The Sebau fuses jazz, soul, and hip-hop into a spiritual and exhortative expression of the joys and frustrations of the Black community.
The Sebau is comprised of the following band members: Rollo Radford on bass; Isaiah Spencer and Justin Boyd on drums; Cher Jey, Quenna, Lene and Rhonda Gray, on vocals; Manu Wisdom on rhymes; Aliyyah eatherington on keys; Abstract Black on turntables; and Luke Mosley and David Boykin on saxophones.
Bill Walker: Urban Griot is the first of many programs included in Art Design Chicago, an exploration of Chicago’s art and design legacy, an initiative of the Terra Foundation for American Art with presenting partner The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
