Monastic and Ecstatic: A Glimpse Into The Life and Legacy of Alice Coltrane

VW Sunday Sessions presents an afternoon celebrating the legacy of Alice Coltrane in collaboration with her son, saxophonist Ravi Coltrane. Alice Coltrane, also referred to as Swamini and Turiyasangitananda by her family and students, was a prolific composer, harpist, and keyboardist who dedicated the later years of her life to the Sai Anantam ashram she founded in 1983 in Agoura Hills, California. Featuring rare audio and video recordings from the extended Coltrane family’s private archive, the program, organized with Luaka Bop, will also include discussion, presentations, performances of Coltrane’s music by Kelsey Lu and Laraaji, and a workshop by Purushottoma Hickson, a student of the ashram.

All guests will be required to check their phone, camera, and any recording devices upon entry. Recording of all kind is strictly prohibited.
