Angel Bat Dawid released a “Transition East” inspired by Total Refreshment Centre
Angel Bat Dawid released two new songs inspired by Total Refreshment Centre. Both new pieces of music are her response to Emma Warren's 2019 book "Make Some Space", about the history of London DIY music institution Total Refreshment Centre.
The first track, “Transition East” is a tribute to the recently revived Chicago community centre that served as a base for AACM and icons from the Black Arts Movement in the 1960s. Very similar institution to London’s TRC.
Watch below a video to Angel Bat Dawid two new songs “Transition East” and “No Space Fo Us”:
The second track “No Space Fo Us” was composed and recorded at a space in Salvador, Bahia, where Angel traveled with a crew of Chicago artists (including International Anthem label mates Ben LaMar Gay & Damon Locks) on a collaborative mission called Close to There (Perto de Lá). The track features Angel with Ben LaMar Gay and new Brazilian friends Edbrass Brasil, Romulo Alexis, Tadeu Mascarenhas, Nancy Viégas and Germano Estacio.”
Angel Bat Dawid is a composer, clarinetist, singer & spiritual jazz soothsayer well known on Chicago's jazz & improvised music scene. She released her debut album “The Oracle” via International Anthem in 2019.
