David Boykin & The Sebau
David Boykin & The Sebau
With his suite of musical compositions entitled "The Lynching of (Insert the Name of Any White Killer of an Unarmed Black Here)", composer and saxophonist David Boykin presents a spiritual and exhortative response to America's plague of racial violence. The Sebau blends jazz, soul, and hip-hop to offer an emotional set of reflections both on the loss of love and life and on our own reactions to that loss. With complex compositions such as "Which Side Are You On?", Boykin not only questions the state of contemporary Black social consciousness but also the ideals of American society more broadly. His upcoming performance will feature excerpts from this suite.

Fusing jazz, soul, and hip-hop music to create a style Boykin calls Astro-Soul, the Sebau is the most recent project of the Chicago-based saxophonist and composer David Boykin. The group’s music incorporates soul singing, rapping, turntablism, and creative improvisation.

The lineup for this evenings performance will feature: Rollo Radford on bass, Justin Boyd on drums, Quenna Lene and Rhonda Gray on vocals, Manu Wisdom on rhymes, Aliyyah Heatherington on keys, , and Davd Boykin on sax and vocals.
