Art, music, atmosphere--UMMA invites you to spend the evening with us at this free community event.

The Ingrid Racine Quartet, featuring local jazz sensation Ingrid Racine – formerly of the post-afrobeat band NOMO -- on trumpet, Detroit guitarist and Wayne State faculty member Chuck Newsome, bassist Jordan Schug, and drummer Rob Avsharian will present jazz interpretations of Afropop classics and original compositions inspired by the Mande tradition of West Africa.
