Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber

Friday July 21, 7 pm

Part of the Skylight Concert Series

This historic New York band brings together a sprawling amalgam of musicians and musical genres to Toronto. Spanning from jazz to hip-hop and back, these artists have been playing together for almost two decades. The band was originally conceived as a forum for New York improvisational musician to compose, record and perform material reflecting the breadth and depth of American diasporan music in the 21st century. In the words of founder and iconic Village Voice writer Greg Tate, “BURNT SUGAR THE ARKESTRA CHAMBER is a territory band, a neo-tribal thang, a community hang, a society music guild aspiring to the condition of all that is molten, glacial, racial, spacial, oceanic, mythic, antiphonal and telepathic.”


Founded by Village Voice icon Greg "Ionman” Tate & co-led with monster groove bassist Jared Michael Nickerson since 1999, New York City’s Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber is a " multiracial jam army that freestyles with cool telekinesis between the lustrous menace of Miles Davis’s On The Corner, the slash-and-om of 1970s King Crimson, and Jimi Hendrix’s moonwalk across side three of Electric Ladyland” (David Fricke - Rolling Stone).
