The musicians in Lilith are all part of the next cutting-edge generation of predominately NYC based creative musicians. Lilith is a biblical reference to Adam’s first wife, who, unlike Eve was formed at the same time and out of the same clay as Adam. There are many myths surrounding Lilith, but all have one thing in common: she is not subservient, but powerful and feared. At a time where women’s rights are in danger of being stripped, reverted or simply don’t exist it seems to be fitting to celebrate a strong and inconvenient woman.

Ingrid Laubrock is an experimental saxophonist and composer, interested in exploring the borders between musical realms and creating multi-layered, dense and often evocative sound worlds.
