Event Description
Jairus Sharif

Jairus Sharif and Mustafa Rafiq, along with local artists Marilyn Yogarajah, Subsume, and Adrian Russouw, join us for a personal, wild-hearted tribute to the potential of improvised music.

For the final Emergents show of the year, we delve into the expressive energy of freely improvised sound.

Mohkinstsis/Calgary-based multi-instrumentalist, improviser, composer and producer Jairus Sharif creates music that deals with healing, self-understanding, and personal freedom, forging connections between hip-hop abstraction, mysticism, and outsider jazz. Following the fall 2022 release of his latest album Water & Tools, Sharif will join the Music Gallery for an improvised set alongside Edmonton-based fellow sonic explorer Mustafa Rafiq, navigating themes generated by the duo.

Opening the evening are local improvisers Marilyn Yogarajah, Subsume, and Adrian Russouw, performing together as a trio for the very first time in a freely-improvised set for trumpet, bass, and live electronics.
