For this intriguing program, Matanda has created a theatrical tone poem expounding on world folk-music sonics.

Matanda (Manhattan School of Music) will be joined by the Oakland-raised multi-instrumentalist Cheflee on bass and electronics, along with Morgan Harrison (SFCM) on piano.

Saracens is the fictitious story of a boy caught in the middle of a holy war. Matanda, along with his collaborators, will present this tale as a tone poem, blending sounds of American folk, Afro-Peruvian percussion and vocalization. The performance will present as an immersive experience akin to that of a speakeasy or work-song, with touches of movement borrowed from the theatrical stage.

Presented by Calliope: East Bay Music & Arts
