Ka Baird

at Cafe Oto, London

This event has been and gone.

Phantom Limb is extremely excited to present Ka Baird, with some extremely special guests Hieroglyphic Being & Sarathy Korwar, to the legendary Cafe Oto this October.

Enigmatic NYC composer and performer Ka Baird brings her unique take on the avant garde to London for a special one-off. Releasing her second solo LP Respires on RVNG Intl, sees her current aesthetic and musical cues taken from indigenous, sacred flute music of New Guinea and vocal music of Burundi, Can, Maryanne Amacher, Don Cherry’s Organic Music Society, and Chaitanya Hari’s Kundalini Meditation Music, all driven by a fearless quest for musical discovery.

Hieroglyphic Being

Hieroglyphic Being appearing at this event

Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being has built a sterling reputation both as a producer and live performer of deep, mesmeric experimental electronics and free jazz rooted in his native Chicago and his relationship with the city’s fertile underground club scene. Inspired by the likes of Ron Trent, DJ Rush (residents at The Reactor where he danced week in week out) and Ron Hardy, Moss was mentored by visionary producers Steve Pointdexter and Adonis, who showed him the drum machines that were the backbone of the Movement and whom encouraged his early forays into music production. Releasing prolifically on his own Mathematics Recordings imprint and a clutch of other imprints, Moss has cemented his stature as a unique creative force. He balances his ancient heritage and musical DNA with a passion to experiment, create and channel music as a healing force, which has resulted in his art being tagged “Afrofuturist”. Moss, however, prefers to describe his output as Synth Expressionism / Rhythmic Cubism and would rather be viewed simply as a promoter of Nubian Rights.
