A concert with Georgia Anne Muldrow is scheduled later on the same day. Concert tickets sold separately here.
Powerful and deeply moving multi- instrumentalist Georgia Anne Muldrow hails from a family steeped in jazz. Her father, Ronald Muldrow, played alongside Eddie Harris while her mother, Rickie Byars, performed as lead singer of Roland Hanna’s New York Jazz Quartet and Pharoah Sanders Ensemble. Eager to follow the family tradition, Georgia Anne Muldrow has collaborated with Robert Glasper, Adrian Younge, Ambrose Akinmursire, Justin Brown’s Nyeusi, and Keyon Harrold among others. Compelled to push the boundaries of jazz, Muldrow’s artistry is known for its adventurous approach—she mixes elements of R&B, jazz, funk, and rap to create music that is often cited as being otherworldly. Nominated in 2020 for the Best Urban Contemporary Album Grammy for her album Overload, Muldrow explains “music is my discipline. It’s my way of meditating, it’s my way of thanking God, it’s my way of communicating… It’s my way of life.”
“Over the years, this gifted Los Angeles singer-producer-multi-instrumentalist has collaborated with Erykah Badu, Sa-Ra Creative Partners and Madlib, so it’s no surprise that her latest full-length is packed full of unflappable funk.” – Rolling Stone
