Do hay with Davu Seru
Zeitgeist and Davu Seru present the premiere of Seru's new work, entitled Do Hay, for three bass drummers and audience. Do Hay invites the community to join in with their voices at this outdoor performance at Frogtown Farm, an urban demonstration farm in St. Paul for those who seek learning, innovation, reflection, celebration, and authentic community.
Minneapolis native Davu Seru (b. 1978) is known internationally as a free-jazz drummer and performs regularly in jazz, rock and avant-garde improvised music. He currently works in a trio with French clarinetist Catherine Delaunay and French bassist Guillaume Seguron, the bands Click Song (with Marc Anderson), Merciless Ghost (with George Cartwright and Josh Granowski), and is co-leader with Mankwe Ndosi of The Mother of Masks, an improvising ensemble of poets, storytellers, activists and musicians. His work as a PhD scholar of African and African American literature and culture colors his musical and artistic sensibilities.
Frogtown Farm is an urban demonstration farm – a destination for those who seek learning, innovation, reflection, celebration, and authentic community. One of the largest urban farms in the country. Located in the heart of the diverse and vibrant Frogtown neighborhood of Saint Paul, Minnesota.
