Sign in to view read count
The Erie Art Museum Contemporary Music Series presents a special concert of the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble on Wednesday March 3, 2010 at 8 p.m. at the Erie Art Museum in the second floor annex.

After 35 years, the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble is still serving their special brand of 21st century Griot music to people worldwide. The Chicago Tribune writes the trio is “harmonically provocative and rhythmically seductive," and they consistently deliver jazz that combines ancestral wisdom, exploratory improvisation, and crack musicianship.

The Ethnic Heritage Ensemble features founder and leader, percussionist Kahil El'Zabar (who has performed with Nina Simone, Dizzy Gillespie, Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Henry Threadgill, and Paul Simon); young trumpeter extraordinaire, Corey Wilkes; and the brilliant saxophone of Ernest Khabeer Dawkins.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
