Episode Description:

Ethnic Heritage Ensemble

Kahil El'Zabar, percussion and vocals
Ernest Dawkins, saxophone
Corey Wilkes, trumpet and cornet


The Ethnic Heritage Ensemble was formed in 1976 by Kahil El’Zabar. Multi-percussionist and composer El’Zabar is joined by young trumpet titan Corey Wilkes and saxophone legend Ernest Dawkins. The goal of the group is to combine concepts of contemporary African American music-making with the earlier roots of traditional African music to make something new, a special brand of 21st century Griot music. Their music conjures a spiritual journey to the inner self and spans sonic time through multiple expressions that transcend styles and genres.

“El'Zabar's rhythms are organic and relentless, and reach to the core of human experience. Those ancient rhythms coupled with forward-looking improvisers have made the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble one of Chicago's jazz treasures...” DownBeat
