World Music Wednesday: Jeremy Dutcher & The Englewood/Soweto Exchange
September 18 @ 7:00 pm
Performer, composer, activist, musicologist — these roles are all infused into Jeremy Dutcher‘s art and way of life. His music, too, transcends boundaries: unapologetically playful in its incorporation of classical influences, full of reverence for the traditional songs of his home, and teeming with the urgency of modern-day struggles of resistance.
Comprised of band members from both the Southside of Chicago, United States and Soweto/Durban communities of South Africa, The Englewood/Soweto Exchange, represents a unique ensemble of emerging artists exploring the hybridization of Hip Hop and Jazz music influenced by neighborhood, tradition, and the contemporary cultural vibrancy of living in their cities.
