The Art Ensembe of Chicago – Budapest

An upcoming Art Ensemble Of Chicago concert in Budapest.


 8 p.m. June, 7. 2018.

One out of  four European concerts will be in Budapest!

Their five great, well-trained and individual-minded musicians are in their musical and intellectual and emotional consistency.

An avant-garde jazz ensemble that grew out of Chicago in the late ’60s, the AEC is notable for its integration of soulful and chaotic musical styles that span jazz’s entire history, helping to redefine what jazz music could be and continue to seek out its future.

They have used what they term little instruments from bicycle horns, bells, birthday party noisemakers, wind chimes, and a vast array of percussion instruments. They also include costumes and face paint in performance. Their show in Budapest will be an extremely rare opportunity to experience the ensemble’s audio visual show in person.

Line up: Roscoe Mitchell – alto, soprano and soprano saxes, Famoudou Don Moye – drums, congas, bongos and percussion, Hugh Ragin – trumpet, flugelhorn and piccolo trumpet, Tomeka Reid – cello

The concert is within the frame of GetCloser Concerts.

Grab your seat before they are sold out.
