DunkelPek (Nava Dunkelman (percussion) and Jakob Pek (guitar, etc.))
and Nicole Mitchell (flute) and Lisa Mezzacappa (bass)

For our first concert of the New Year, we have two duos:

DunkelpeK is Nava Dunkelman (percussion) and Jakob Pek (guitar, miscellany, piano). This Bay Area based duo offers listeners a visceral, syncretic experience of sound and silence. Inspired and informed by many musics of the world and beyond, DunkelpeK interweaves and explores countless dimensions of vibration, giving being to a sonic reality unlike any other.

Improvising flutist, composer and bandleader Nicole Mitchell, a longtime member of Chicago's AACM and its first woman president and multiple DownBeat and Jazz Journalists Association poll winner, joins bassist Lisa Mezzacappa for an improvised duo of extremes.
