Kamasi Washington Interview and Preview

Source: The Sydney Morning Herald.

Washington, 35, presents as something of cosmic cat. Aside from colourful tunics, beads, jumbo jewellery and celestial album artwork, the 35-year-old’s nightly dreams are a major influence on life and work.

“One of the first songs I started writing choir parts to was Change of the Guard,” Washington says of The Epic’s opening 12-minute declaration. “While I was working on that song I started having this recurring dream about a guy who was standing on a mountaintop guarding a cave.”

At the Historic Bohemian Caverns
2001 11th Street NW, WDC
Our wonderful presenting relationship with Bohemian Caverns, and it’s proprietor, curator, and friend and dear brother, Omrao Brown, began in 2011, on an un-promoted Sunday performance by guitarist Jean-Paul Burelly, ultimately inaugurating our Sunday’s@7@The Caverns free jazz music series. With Bohemian’s sadly felt and regretted closing at the end of March 2016, we will conclude the named series – again with strings – this Sunday with a performance by cellist Janel Leppin & guitarist Anthony Pirog.
