The Forest is a new, cooperative percussion group comprised of five composer/percussionists who work in deep dialogue with African-Diasporic music from jazz to hip hop, new music, free improvisation, and more. Featuring Gustavo Aguilar, Leah Bowden, Andrew Drury, Lesley Mok, and Michael Wimberly, The Forest is inspired by the percussion extravaganzas of Sun Ra and the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Their sound emerges from the essence of the groundbreaking ensemble M'Boom, whose co-founder Warren Smith (along with Max Roach and other drum masters) joins The Forest for a special performance of one of his original M'Boom works. Reed master J.D. Parran also joins the band as a special guest.
