Idris Ackamoor And The Pyramids
The Hug and Pint, Glasgow.
This event is for 18 and over - No refunds will be issued for under 18s.
Saxophonist and composer Idris Ackamoor is best-known as the founder and leader of the Pyramids, an Afrocentric world music and spiritual jazz group whose sound emerges from a fertile creative zone that overlaps the aesthetic terrain explored (like Sun Ra and the Art Ensemble of Chicago, but with different emphasis). They released a trio of recordings during the 1970s -- Lalibela, King of Kings, Birth/Speed/Merging -- that proved highly influential to several generations of artists. After a long period of inactivity, they were reconvened by Ackamoor in 2015 as a celebrated touring and recording outfit. They signed to the U.K.'s Strut label and released We Be All Africans in 2016, and followed with An Angel Fell in 2018, Shaman! in 2021, and Afro Futuristic Dreams in 2023.
