The ensemble formed by jazz legend Horace Tapscott performs this Saturday, October 23, at the World Stage in Leimert Park.
Horace Tapscott’s Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra performs live at the World Stage October 23rd in support of friend and Ark member Phil Ranelin. Since 1961, the Ark and its multi-generational collective of musicians have been dedicated to community, social consciousness, arts and Afrikan culture. This Saturday’s concert continues the ensemble’s eternal mission to “preserve and present music from Black composers, dead, alive, known, or unknown.”
A message from the Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra:
“This Saturday at the World Stage we are hosting a benefit concert for our beloved friend and one of a kind musician, Phil Ranelin. Some of you may know that Phil recently suffered from a stroke and is currently recovering. His current goal is to relocate to where he can have proper care, and he is very close to his goal! If you’d like to help him get there please attend the show via The World Stage’s facebook or YouTube page, or at the Stage in person.”
The World Stage is located at 4321 Degnan Blvd in Leimert Park, Los Angeles. Donations will be required upon entry with all proceeds going to Phil Ranelin!
