Last July 20 we were waiting for Makaya McCraven’s concert at the triennale garden in milan, but a violent and sudden thunderstorm a few minutes before the start of the performance caused the event to be cancelled. However, we are happy to be able to inform you that, after a week of work, we managed to find the conditions to be able to reschedule the concert to be held on Sunday, November 5, at BASE Milano (MI), for the JAZZMI closing party.

His sound has always been suspended between jazz, hip hop, funk and soul. On stage at the Milan Triennale Garden, he will present his latest album “In These Times,” hailed by critics and audiences alike and nominated for three Grammy Awards Makaya McCraven is a prolific drummer, composer and producer. His latest album, In These Times, is the triumphant finale to a project spanning more than 7 years. It is a preeminent addition to his already acclaimed and extensive discography, and it is the album he has been trying to make since he began recording records. Born in Paris in 1983 to a Hungarian mother (singer and flutist Ágnes Zsigmondi) and an African American father (Jazz drummer Stephen McCraven), Makaya grew up in the vibrant Northampton, Massachusetts, area, where his father shared stages and sessions with saxophonist and ethnomusicologist Marion Brown, multi-instrumentalist Yusef Lateef and saxophonist Archie Shepp, as well as a long line of African Gnawa musicians. This mixing of genres, to which he has become accustomed since childhood, defines his mood, a true folk philosophy within the “jazz scheme.”
