Our anniversary celebration continues with this program featuring the renowned Pan Afrikan People's Arkestra and Build An Ark.

Conceived by Carlos Niño (KPFK), the concert brings together PAPA's 50 years tradition of fearless experimental jazz with a decade's worth of soul-stirring astral vibes from Build an Ark. Get ready to plunge into the musical flow as collective creativity and ensemble improvisation ride the universal waves. This presentation honors the legacy of C. Bernard Jackson.
