New Recording from Imani Winds Features Vijay Iyer's Bruits

Feb. 01, 2021

New Recording from Imani Winds Features Vijay Iyer's <em>Bruits</em>

Vijay Iyer's Bruits is the titular work on Imani Winds's latest recording, "Bruits", which will be released on February 5. Bruits was composed as a response to the shocking 2012 killing of Black teenager, Trayvon Martin.

Imani Winds explains the concept behind their new disc:

"Bruits sheds light on the murderous consequences of the stand your ground law.

The light is the same elaborates Rumi’s reflection on connection:

Religions are many/ but god is one/ the lamps may be different/ but the light is the same.

Sometimes (i feel like a motherless child) is transformed into a new creation.

The need is clear, in black and white. We are bruited. Our passages are raw, blocked. And we cannot continue this way.

There are ways to unite.

We can be connected by love.
We can understand each other by communicating.
And we can be healed by music.

With that in mind Imani Winds has assembled these musical selections, all written for the ensemble, to bring us

Together through intentionally relevant compositions, performances, and programming."
