Angel Bat Dawid & Tha Brothahood

Fokus Afrofuturism

Resistance and unrestrained sound

Composer, clarinettist, pianist, singer and DJ: Angel Bat Dawid’s creative expression knows no limits. However, her rise to artistic success began as a free fall: she dropped out of her music course due to a cancer diagnosis and took on a day job to pay for the cost of the operation. In 2014, she quit and invested the pay-out in equipment.

It wasn’t long before she conquered the music scene in her adopted home of Chicago, and she now performs in major cities around the world. Her spiritual jazz is about resistance, about a refusal to be restricted, about unrestrained sound. Together with her band Tha Brothahood, she connects with the collective spirit of the Sun Ra Arkestra. Blending dance and meditation with free improvisation without a safety net, Angel Bat Dawid is an exceptional phenomenon.
