Sun Ra Arkestra
  • 15.7. klo 21:30 | Lokki Stage

American The Sun Ra Arkestra is a truly epic jazz phenomenon that is simply not to be seen or experienced ever again. Composer-pianist-philosopher Sun Ra (1914-93) led his band from the 50’s up until his death and created an infinitely fascinating musical cosmos in which free jazz, Afro-American music culture in all it’s splendour and cosmic universe all joined in perfect harmony. The ensemble is known for its spectacle performances lead by current bandleader, saxophonist Marshall Allen, who at the age of 92 is still actively touring the world preaching the gospel of music and his dear departed friend Sun Ra. Sun Ra Arkestra was last seen in Pori back in 2005 at the main stage but will this time perform at the legendary Lokki Stage which will be transformed into an intergalactic laboratory for the durance of their performance.
