As an extension of the masterclass in the afternoon Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti will be giving a concert from 20:30 h, both solo and in trio with none other than drummer legend Avreeayl Ra from Chicago and pianist Marta Warelis!

The concert can of course also be visited without attending the masterclass.

Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti is an independent artist, performer, theatre maker, vocalist, visual artist, musician and teacher from Bolivian and Brazilian descent. The core of her art journey is interdisciplinary. She researches the ‘in between’ spaces to find enough friction to occupy unknownness, magic, mystery, which allows her to re-imagine story-telling possibilities.

Ibelisse will play together with the Polish pianist Marta Warelis, a driving force in the Amsterdam improv scene & beyond! ÁND especially for the concert, Avreeayl Ra, the former drummer of Sun Ra Arkestra will drop by at De Ruimte, to do a jam with Ibelisse and Marta. Avreeayl’s muscular, soul-seeded beats have been described as stirring tempos that drive animated sonic conversations. His boundless versatility refracts an infinite sonic spectrum in the improvisational soundscape he has co-created in the many cultural communities to which he belongs. He has toured nationally and internationally for decades with renowned ensembles led by Sun Ra and Ari Brown and with The Arts Ensemble of Chicago. Other collaborators include Fred Anderson, Amiri Baraka, Fontella Bass, Gary Batrz, Lester Bowie, Oscar Brown, Jr., Nicole Mitchell, Pharoah Sanders, and Quincy Troope.

This is going to be something!
