…One of the great cult-icons of jazz, pianist, composer and organist Sun Ra formed the Arkestra in the mid 1950s and led it until his death in 1993. His ensemble has continued performing and creating supernatural sounds ever since, influencing contemporary artists from Sonic Youth to Solange.

Under the direction of seminal Sun Ra collaborator Marshall Allen (a member since 1958), the Arkestra is now in its sixth decade and still includes many original members of Ra’s Ensemble, keeping the spirit of their late leader alive and bringing his music to new generations of Sun Ra lovers around the world.
