Ribot Leads Revolutionary Call At Jazz Em Agosto



Portugal’s premier experimental jazz bash, Jazz em Agosto, adopts a decidedly rebellious stance this year with a series of events pushing for protest and a manifesto of social change. Held between 1-11 August, within the grounds of Lisbon’s picturesque Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, among the sonic insurgents appearing at this year’s festival are Marc Ribot, who’ll be performing his ‘Songs of Resistance’ suite, plus Nicole Mitchell, Joey Baron, Tomas Fujiwara, Zeena Parkins, Ambrose Akinmusire, Ingrid Laubrock, Tom Rainey, Julien Desprez and Mary Halvorson.
