Berkeley-reared, Juilliard-trained pianist, composer, activist and writer Samora Abayomi Pinderhughes gained international attention with the release of his searing 2016 debut album The Transformation Suite, a multimedia project that evolved in tandem with the national movement focusing on black lives cut short by violence. The New York-based composer returns to the Bay Area to present I’m Still Here, a concert combining pieces from his past works and excerpts from The Healing Project, a work in progress. The concert encompasses an array of approaches, from intimate vocal moments to spoken word pieces to group improvisations featuring a large ensemble. It’s a show about making space together to be vulnerable, to support each other, and to speak out on the injustices happening to us and around us.
