PHILADELPHIA New Yor-Uba celebrations include @ THE PHILADELPHIA CLEF CLUB OF JAZZ on Saturday, December 21

The anticipated next chapter of Michele Rosewoman’s New Yor-Uba marks its debut on November 1, 2019 with the release of “HALLOWED,” on the artists’ own label, Advance Dance Disques. CD release events, will kick off with a residency at New York City’s ZINC, 82 West 3rd Street, 212.477.9462, on November 2 & 8, 2019 at 7:30pm & 9:30pm, presented in association with Habana/Harlem®  Neyda Martínez & Onel Muletand a performance at The Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz on December 21.

Following up on their 2013 double disc release, which celebrated 30 years and garnered NPR’S #1 Latin Jazz Recording of the Year Award, Rosewoman continues her artistic exploration along with her cast of master musicians and folklorists. With an evolution in personnel, New Yor-Uba returned to the studio to record and present its next groundbreaking offering, “HALLOWED”.  Recorded in 2017-2018 at Systems Two Studiosthe return of the ensemble represents the next body of work in its 35-year musical evolution. Her current and long-standing ensemble members are some of the brightest and most sought out voices from both the spiritually based Cuban folkloric tradition and contemporary jazz worlds. To conceive a thoroughly uncompromised synthesis of both, Ms. Rosewoman has spent a lifetime immersed in the essence of these two profound musical traditions.
