Named for the Swahili word that translates to “freedom,” the Uhuru Jazz Series pays homage to jazz as the embodiment of freedom, improvisation, discovery, liberation, and promise. Supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the series features monthly performances at the AWAACC.
Kick off the start of the 13th Annual Pittsburgh International Jazz Festival with an Uhuru Jazz Session, featuring Samora Pinderhughes and Madison McFerrin! McFerrin starts the evening in the intimate AWAACC studio while Pinderhughes closes the first of many nights throughout the weekend with beautiful music.
