Listen to the Sai Anantam Ashram Singers perform the ecstatic music of Alice Coltrane live at LGW17 Wed Feb 21st Le Guess Who? 2017 celebrated the life & work of Alice Coltrane with the Sai Anantam Ashram Singers performing her ecstatic music live at the festival. Listen to three tracks of the performance below, including a special guest appearance by saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings on 'Universal Chant': About the project:Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda’s devotion to spirituality defined the final decades of her life. In 1983, she established the 48-acre Sai Anantam Ashram outside of LA, where she quietly began recording music. In 2017, Luaka Bop (the label founded by David Byrne) released the first compilation of recordings from this period: a powerful, largely unheard body of work that finds Alice singing for the first time. The release showcases a diverse array of recordings, including performances on harp, with small ensembles, and a 24-piece vocal choir. Le Guess Who? featured the European premiere of these recordings performed live by the Sai Anantam Ashram Singers, to bring this meaningful piece of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda’s legacy into focus.
