Jason Moran / Alicia Hall Moran / Imani Winds

Alicia Hall Moran and Jason Moran are not just a perfect partnership personally; musically speaking, they are also a dream team of modern-day black America. He achieved world fame as one of the most creative jazz pianists of his generation (and beyond). In her performances, Alicia Hall Moran draws from her training as a classical opera singer and approaches her parts with the freedom of an artist who has a mastery of a number of styles. Their latest joint project – with a distinguished line-up of jazz musicians and the Imani Winds ensemble – recreates the Great Migration, which saw around 6 million African Americans move from the southern states to the north and the east of the US over the course of the twentieth century. It was a transformation that led to the development of the continent’s amazingly diverse musical identity, blending rhythm ’n’ blues, gospel, classical, soul, Broadway and jazz.
