"...Matana Roberts does not make easy listening music." (Los Angeles Times)

A dynamic saxophonist, composer, and improviser, she aims to expose the mystical roots and spiritual traditions of American creative expression in her music. Her innovative work has forged new conceptual approaches to considering narrativity, history, and political expression within improvisatory structures. She is a past member of the AACM: The Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians and the BRC: The Black Rock Coalition.
