Abgesagt | Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids | Afro Futuristic Dreams

PICK OF THE DAY
You cannot miss this event.
In the organizer's words:

Idris Ackamoor and The Pyramids began their musical work together in 1972. Inspired by a spiritual musical journey through Africa and Europe, they released the two albums "Lalibela" in 1973 and "King of Kings" in 1974, followed two years later by "Birth/Speed/Merging". Then the band broke up. Around 2006, they were rediscovered by a younger generation of jazz fans and DJs. They have been back since 2007, playing concerts around the world and releasing material that has been acclaimed by critics and listeners alike, bringing the spiritual jazz of the 1970s into the 21st century.

Their latest album, "Afro Futuristic Dreams", was released in 2023, and while its content is unmistakably close to the high priest of spiritual jazz Sun Rah, Idris Ackamoor and The Pyramids go their own way musically, combining spiritual intensity with clear political messages. The tracks explore myriad traditions, styles and harmonic and rhythmic combinations, making the album an impressive testament to survival and unity, with a clear view to the future.
