Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids: 50th Anniversary Celebration
Saturday 21:45 - 22:55 Grote Zaal - TivoliVredenburg
Idris Ackamoor has revived his legendary afro-jazz band The Pyramids before, but never quite like this. The epoch bringing them back for a new tour (to commence at Le Guess Who?) is one worth an epic celebration, as 2022 marks Ackamoor’s fiftieth (!) year as a performer with the group, first formed in 1972. They will unveil music from their upcoming commemorative double vinyl, ‘Afro Futuristic Dreams’, set for a 2023 release with Strut Records. Additionally, festival-goers can grasp Idris Ackamoor’s remarkable cultural odyssey through an accompanying visual arts exhibition, featuring photographs, posters, and album covers.
