The Music Gallery Presents: Jairus Sharif

June 14, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 pm


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.”
