This prestigious series, a collaboration between Jazz at Lincoln Center and the U. S. State Department, features top performers of jazz, urban, and roots music, selected from applicants from around the country to represent American music and culture at venues overseas.
Formed in 1979, Nasar Abadey and SUPERNOVA performs jazz in a multi-dimensional and multi-directional way – from crossing the borders of jazz and continuing beyond space and time. They perform and explore various jazz elements such as traditional African rhythms, bebop, fusion, Afro-Cuban, Afro Brazilian, and free form. The quartet’s musical inspirations include John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, and Duke Ellington.
