Sweet tooth Featuring Taylor HoBynum | Dimensions in Jazz
October 28 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Dimensions in Jazz presents Mali Obomsawin’s new work Sweet Tooth featuring Taylor Ho Bynum on cornet.
Sweet Tooth | Mali Obomsawin’s new work Sweet Tooth is a suite for Indigenous Resistance, weaving together original compositions and arrangements with archival pieces from her community at Wabanaki First Nation.
Mali Obomsawin Sextet features Savannah Harris on drums, Allison Burik and Noah Campbell on reeds, Miriam Elhajli on voice and guitar, and Taylor Ho Bynum on cornet. Stay tuned for the record in 2022!
Known for her work as a bassist and singer, the project is Obomsawin’s debut as a composer-bandleader. Sweet Tooth highlights exciting intersections in Obomsawin’s own roots: incorporating a deep knowledge of rock, jazz, and folk traditions, it juxtaposes Wabanaki stories and songs passed down in her own family with tunes addressing contemporary Indigenous life, blood politics, colonization, continuity, love and rage.
