First Listen Session – Shabaka – Perceive its beauty, Acknowledge its Grace (2024)

April 10 @ 18 h 30 min - 22 h 30 min

Exclusiv First Listen Session of the new Shabaka record, his very first full LP!
(Official street date April 12)

Thanks to @impulserecords , we will have an exclusive album playback before album release.

The record will be played from 6:30 PM and a second time at 8:30 PM .

Please note that this event is not a usual listening session in the way we do it on mondays. It is an exclusive playback before release, means, you are able to talk, order, drink, comment, come and go.

But, please, do always keep in mind, with respect to all guests, keep the soundlevel of your conversations as low as possible.

After putting down the saxophone, the instrument he has become synonymous with, Shabaka returns with his first full length album under his own name.  Expanding off the meditative 2022 EP Afrikan Culture, his new album “Perceive its beauty, Acknowledge its Grace” is a deeply moving suite of primarily instrumental music.  The listening experience is reflective and contemplative, with passages flowering from one musical concept to the next, encouraging deep attention that rewards the listener with throughlines and motifs throughout the record.  Shabaka is found playing the flute on this album, and has enlisted key artists such as Andre 3000, Lianne La Havas, Moses Sumney, Floating Points, and more to help build this all-encompassing aural landscape.

In cooperation with Impulse! Records.
