About this show

Composer and instrumentalist Raz Mesinai, known for his acclaimed recordings under the moniker Badawi, assembles an all-star ensemble of artists from the far reaches of hip hop, dub, traditional Middle Eastern, and contemporary experimental music for his new piece, Myth of Nations. Based on ancient Sumerian mythology, this genre-defying excursion--featuring rapper Seraphim, slam poet Celena Glenn, and instrumentalists Carla Kihlstedt, Shahzad Ismaily, and Miguel Frasconi, among others--dissolves sonic boundaries in a musical exploration of the story of the goddess Inanna's descent into the netherworld.
