In preparing this exhibition we were continuously confronted with basic questions: Why build a new instrument? What is it supposed to do? How will it be played and in what context? To what extent will it require appropriate techniques, and will the result be consistent? Is that actually what we want?

The results of these couple of months of reflection and hard work suggest ideas about composition as much as they do about improvisation. The next step will be to take those ideas and run with them wherever they might take us…

Sat 12/05 3:00 PM Essential Virtual Tour [https://www.ekishola.com]
Streaming  
Opening and closing with a rhythmic meditation, Essential evolved beyond its original intent to embrace newness and self-discovery through the power of voice. The album shares hope inspired by periods of contemplation among movements of climate change, coronavirus pandemic, and Black Lives Matter advocacy. Partial proceeds from the album were donated to the Freedom Community Clinic serving underserved people of color who live in the Bay Area. Eki Shola looks forward to embarking on her Essential Virtual Tour and completing her fifth solo album.

Lockdown Festival IV: The New Year (Online)

Featuring: Scott Amendola, Grex (Karl Evangelista + Rei Scampavia), SNEAL (Jacob Rimler), Evelyn Davis, Nik Francis (DC), William Roper (LA), Shayna Dunkelman (NY), gabby fluke-mogul (NY), and Usufruct (Polly Springhorn + Tim Walters).
