Apura uses original composition and daring improvised sounds to tie the revolutionary music of the past to the activist music of the present day, touching on American, South African, and Filipino musical traditions.

Combining the strengths of legendary drummer Andrew Cyrille (in for the great Louis Moholo-Moholo) and Asian American jazz icon Francis Wong with firebrand bassist Lisa Mezzacappa and experimental powerhouse Evangelista, Apura celebrates and advances the spirit of intercultural collaboration pioneered by the likes of the Brotherhood of Breath, Asian Improv aRts, and Milford Graves’s Dialogue of the Drums.
