Centro d'Arte's "50/50" series continues! In this new installment, we present a musical portrait of Hamid Drake, simply one of the most original percussionists on the planet, whose musical vision merges the energy of free jazz with the spirituality of eastern philosophies, embracing all the musics of the world.
The mixtape features the music of this extraordinary musician, as well as a selection picked by Drake himself from some of his favorite records.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
