Born in California, raised in Texas and now based in NYC, Susie Ibarra is one of the most sought after drummers in the downtown scene having worked with Derek Bailey, David S. Ware, Ikue Mori, Dave Douglas and Matthew Shipp among others. Of Filipino descent, her music blends Asian traditions, free jazz, improvisation and minimalism into evocative and dynamic soundscapes. This exciting recording features her in a variety of contexts, both solo and with an all-star group of her most illustrious musical compatriots. The sounds of Kulintang (Filipino gamelan), fiery free-jazz drumming, Leo Smith's delicate trumpet and the "deep listening" accordion of Pauline Oliveros all come together to make this one of the most unusual recordings of the year.
