Empyrea is a trio of internationally acclaimed musical explorers who revel in the limitless possibilities that reside in the great unknown. The group is percussionist Ian Dogole, saxophonist/vocalist Richard Howell and bassist/cellist/other Kash Killion.
Their musical explorations defy category – cross-cultural, cross-genre and able to leap into the cosmic spaceways at any moment – all with an intention to uplift and energize their audiences.
While Jazz plays an integral role in Empyrea’s creations, instruments and inspirations from Africa, Asia, the Middle East and the Americas percolate throughout the proceedings. Stellar exploratory small ensembles such as Codona and the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble have exposed us to the magic of creative improvised music that lives beyond all limits. Now, Empyrea is ready to take the torch and light a new path....
