Ahkeel Mestayer Quintet

September 29 @ 12:30 PM PDT

Ahkeel Mestayer Quintet

The dynamic San Francisco percussionist Ahkeel Mestayer creates music steeped in The City’s history as a hotbed of musical innovation and political ferment. Inspired by Latin jazz and Latin rock visionaries like Jerry González, Andy González, John Santos and Malo, he’s founded a series of sonically expansive bands that creatively combine various Afro-Caribbean rhythmic idioms. On a recent collaboration with San Francisco Poet Laureate Tongo Eisen-Martin, Live From the Third World, he created musical settings based on interviews with San Francisco State activists who spearheaded the late 1960s strike for ethnic studies.
