2022 Burlington Discover Jazz Festival

Ancestral Communal Listening with Michael Mwenso

Honoring Black LGBTQ

Burlington Records


In the spirit of honoring and communing with musical forebears, each day of the festival begins and ends with experiences that acknowledge the artists who played key roles in the history and narrative of Black music. The days start with Reflection/Meditation sessions featuring solo acoustic performances. This is immediately followed by Ancestral Communal Listening gatherings, where Michael Mwenso and guests guide audiences through different musical styles of Black roots music to discover and celebrate significant, formative artists in these spaces.
