CELEBRATING 35 YEARS OF EVOLUTION, LATIN GRAMMY® RECIPIENT MICHELE ROSEWOMAN RELEASES

“HALLOWED” THE ANTICIPATED NEXT CHAPTER FROM THE GROUNDBREAKING ENSEMBLE NEW YOR-UBA

“… Rosewoman and her very aware musicians layer jazz phrasing and harmony over those ancient rhythms, and do justice to both traditions. It’s like inventing Afro-Cuban jazz and sacred concerts all over again.” – Kevin Whitehead, NPR’s FRESH AIR

“This recording represents a 35-year evolution of both the concept of the ensemble and the deepening of my own relationship to this profound tradition of endless depth, to which I am so completely bound…Spirituality calls for active transformation of mind, body, spirit– individually and collectively. This recording opens, as do the traditional ceremonies, with an invocation to the guerreros (warriors). Given the urgency of these times and the battles that need to be fought and won in this very moment for the sake of all humanity, we summon our warriors from within as we thank and acknowledge those on the frontlines. We need them now.”- MICHELE ROSEWOMAN
