Trumpeter/composer/bandleader/educator Ahmed Abdullah’s band Diaspora (Dispersions of the Spirit of Ra) will make a rare NY appearance and perform at For My Sweet, 1103 Fulton Street between Classon and Claver Place on Monday, August 5th at 7 and 9pm. The band includes vocalist/poet Monique Ngozi Nri,  Alex Harding, baritone sax, D.D.Jackson, piano, Radu, bass and drummer Reggie Nicholson.

Diaspora is an acronym, according to Sun Ra, who clearly explained this from the astral plane and therefore the music of this band includes the music of Sun Ra complemented by music, lyrics and poetry of the African Diaspora.

Mr. Abdullah has been leading his own band since 1972. His music will be featured on WKCR, 89.9FM, Sunday, July 28th from 2pm until 7pm. In this year, 2013, two of the recordings from the collective ensembles Ahmed Abdullah performed in, the Melodic Art-Tet (1974) and The Group (1986), have been released on the Lithuanian label, NoBusiness Records. These recording will be available at the performance.
