WATU UTUNGO

Jazz has long served as a vehicle for creativity, personal expression and the quest for social and political justice. Watu Utungo, led by renowned Columbus-area drummer James Gaiters, will perform in an intimate setting at the Jazz Academy, followed by an open discussion with the band along with special guests on the topic of jazz and its role in the civil rights movement – yesterday, today and tomorrow. This program is presented in partnership with the King Arts Complex and their project: “MLK: 50 Years Later”.

WATU UTUNGO is a Columbus-based music collective that brings together Afro-Pop, Soul Jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop, and Gospel sounds. WATU UTUNGO, which translates to ‘Rhythmic People’ in Swahili is helmed by drummer James Gaiters. Other members include: Eddie Bayard/Saxophone; Lee Savory/Trumpet & Flugelhorn; Myles Tate/Keyboards; DJ Krate Digga/Turntables, Loops and Sounds; and Dwight Bailey/Bass.

The New Black Eastside Songbook @ Short North Stage

The New Black Eastside Songbook @ Short North Stage

Streetlight Guild presents “The New Black Eastside Songbook,” a six-song suite conceptualized by Columbus writer Scott Woods featuring new music composed by The Ogun Meji Duo, Counterfeit Madison, Krate Digga, Paisha Thomas and Jordan Sandidge.

“The New Black Eastside Songbook” is an exploration of black life and culture in Columbus historically and now, touching on subjects ranging from local jazz legends and privilege to the police and gentrification. It interrogates the definition of Columbus culture, and what relationship such culture might have to the people who both create and partake of it. Utilizing some of Columbus’ brightest musical talent across a variety of styles and backgrounds, this work seeks to establish a bar for the marriage of political context and musical examination, adding new bricks to the foundation of whatever Columbus culture may entail.

PROGRAM
1. Welcome to Bronzeville
2. Blight Privilege
3. Rahsaan Rollin’ In The Dirt
4. Olde Town Beast
5. Things To Do In Black Columbus
6. Bulldozing The Ave

Funded by the Johnstone Fund for New Music, this performance is part of the “New Music at Short North Stage” free concert series. Cocktails will be available for purchase an hour before the concert at Ethel’s Lounge, adjacent to the theater. Seating is limited and available on a first-come first-served basis. Recommended for guests age nine and older. Parking is available at a lot just south of the theater and at nearby meters. Free street parking is available after 6:00 p.m. on weekdays on the south side of Fifth Avenue west of High Street around the corner from the theater.
