Mali Obomsawin Quartet

January 26, 2025
Harold Prince Theatre
PLA Presents

Making their Philadelphia debut, Mali Obomsawin is a bassist and singer/songwriter from Odanak First Nation. Infused with American roots, indie rock and jazz, Obomsawin’s internationally acclaimed album, Sweet Tooth, was named in “best of 2023” lists by, The Guardian, NPR and JazzTimes. Truly on the cutting edge of jazz, Obomsawin seamlessly melds chorale-like spirituals, folk melodies and post-Albert Ayler free jazz in evocative compositions that serve not only as “potent commentary on indigenous heritage, autonomy and experiences, but as gripping, dynamic and thunderous music in and of itself." (JazzTimes)
