Kente Arts Presents pianist Cyrus Chestnut and hid African Reflections Quintet

In 2014 Cyrus visited Senegal, where he performed at the U.S. Embassy in Dakar and at the Saint-Louis Jazz Festival. This was his first trip to Africa, and it inspired him to create a new collection of material- jazz filtered through African rhythms and pieces influenced by Cyrus’s own experiences on his journey.
