Imani Winds, a globe-circling, genre-blurring quintet, has seemingly collaborated with every significant musical figure of our time, from Wayne Shorter and Paquito D’Rivera to Yo-Yo Ma and Elliott Carter. Imani has performed in every important venue and series in North America, and this year makes its debut appearances in France, Brazil and China.
The Washington Examiner says Imani Winds presents "… a soulful blend of classical, Latin, jazz, and world music…" and is "one of the most innovative and exciting ensembles to have emerged on the classical music scene."
Since 1997, the Grammy-nominated quintet has taken a unique path, carving out a distinct presence in the classical music world with its dynamic playing, culturally poignant programming, genre-blurring collaborations, and inspirational outreach programs. With two member composers and a deep commitment to commissioning new work, the group is enriching the traditional wind quintet repertoire while meaningfully bridging European, American, African, and Latin American traditions.
