Impulse Ensemble w/ Tony Vacca

Saturday May 2, 2015
Impulse Ensemble w/ Tony Vacca
Performance: 6:30 pm

In Conjunction with the 2015 Alchemy Fair
Dinner available prior to the show at the GCA Grille
A free-flow fusion of World Music, Jazz and Spoken Word

Tony Vacca: balafon, gongs, percussion, spoken word.
Jim Matus: electric laoutar (an instrument he created!), vocals.
Derrik Jordan: electric violin, percussion, vocals. 

Tony Vacca, Jim Matus and Derrik Jordan share a special interest in the converging traditions and innovations that are constantly redefining what it is to be an American musician.

They are passionate and mesmerizing performers on their respective instruments, equally at home in a written composition or in a totally free-form improvisation. They have each produced many recordings of their own music, and have traveled around the world in pursuit of their visions.

In creating Impulse Ensemble they are combining forces to make some truly extraordinary music which is based on influences from West African music, jazz, spoken word and whatever creative ideas are floating through their amazingly creative minds!
