About the event

Bukas (Tagalog for "Tomorrow"), is a brand-new work that explores the intersection between intergenerational resistance and revolutionary music. Performed by Karl Evangelista's Apura ensemble with special guest Andrew Cyrille, Bukas combines prerecorded interviews, documenting the firsthand accounts of veteran artists with histories in musical innovation, with cutting-edge sounds drawn from the realms of free jazz, electronic music, and noise. Come see Karl Evangelista (@grexsounds), Andrew Cyrille, Lewis Jordan (@zen_baptist), Francis Wong (@fwong57), Lisa Mezzacappa (@lisamezzacappa), and Rei Scampavia (@rei_scampavia) perform this piece two nights only at The Lab and Oaktown Jazz Workshops. Audiences of all stripes are invited to enjoy this program of visceral and thought-provoking new music, including communities invested in activist and BIPOC causes.
