In celebration of a HALF CENTURY in the performing arts beginning with the founding of his
legendary band, THE PYRAMIDS in 1972, Idris Ackamoor will salute this epoch with the
AMERICAN PREMIERE of “AFRO FUTURISTIC DREAMS,” the 50th Anniversary
commemorative double vinyl album release in 2023 for STRUT Records.

“AFRO FUTURISTIC DREAMS,” is a departure from any albums recorded by Idris Ackamoor
with The Pyramids or his other ensembles over his entire career as a performer and composer! This will be the first time Idris has composed music for orchestra musicians featuring a string
quartet, additional horn section, several vocalists, as well as, his seven piece band IDRIS
ACKAMOOR☥THE PYRAMIDS. The band features Idris performing on saxophones, keytar,
piano, vocals, spoken word and percussions; original Pyramids co — founder, Margaux Simmons
conducting the orchestra and performing on flutes, percussions, vocals, Sandra Poindexter on
acoustic and electric violins, vocals and percussions, Bobby Cobb on guitar, and vocals, original
member Bradie Speller on congas and percussions, original member Mark Heshima Williams on
acoustic and electric basses, and George Hearst on drums.

“AFRO FUTURISTIC DREAMS,” pays homage to the present AFROFUTURISM movement that
has embraced the science-fiction writers Octavia Butler and Samuel R. Delany, and musician Sun
Ra. IDRIS ACKAMOOR ☥THE PYRAMIDS also have been celebrated as progenitors of
Afrofuturism in interviews and articles. “Ackamoor’s route to Afro-Futurist jazz began in the US in the 1960s, but was fast tracked in 1972, when he and the band, then a trio, began a year traveling and performing in Africa. From Morocco, the group set off through Senegal for Ghana, before crossing the continent and traveling in Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia. Along the way they experienced at first-hand the ritual power of music and its ability to bind communities together—the twin tenets of first-wave Afro-Futurist jazz, which combined science fiction-inspired magical realism with black consciousness-inspired socio-political activism” - ALL ABOUT JAZZ - Chris May
