Beyond what we can see, can we be? Jomama Jones returns with celebrated pianist Samora Pinderhughes, a stellar band, vocalists, and a few special guests to investigate the heart of our matter. Singing original songs, Jomama explores the signs and signifiers found in the darkest part of the night that send us toward the blush of dawn. Pinder hughes’s searching and emotive arrangements will call the flowers to blooming. This night? Black Light!
