2015 avant music festival

Meet the composer

Vocalist, composer and cultural worker Imani Uzuri has been called "a post modernist Bessie Smith" by The Village Voice. Uzuri creates music that reflects her North Carolina roots where she grew up singing Spirituals and line-singing hymns with her grandmother and extended family in their small rural church. Uzuri's music also highlights her affinity for her African American cultural musical practices like antiphony, polyrhythms and the use of melisma, guttural sounds and moans. She has recently been praised in the New York Times for her "gorgeously chesty ruminations".
