Matana Roberts is one of the leading lights of contemporary African-American experimental music, combining her widely recognized gifts as an alto saxophone player and improviser with an intensely engaged re-definition of American Jazz traditions. This music speaks for itself. It rallies adventurous improv, experimental voice and narrative, a wide array of black folkways, and Roberts' impassioned lead playing to tremendous emotional and conceptual effect

"Constellation, an independent Canadian record label dedicated to releasing adventurous music, visited Vienna in the autumn of 2012 during the 50th anniversary of the Viennale and the 15th anniversary of the label. In addition to eight Constellation bands/artists, the label was accompanied by filmmakers from La Blogothèque, a collective known for the Take Away Shows with musicians filmed in unusual locations. In Vienna, a city with no shortage of unique and accoustically compelling spaces, a series of stripped-down performances unfolded: Eric Chenaux in the empty theater of the Metro Kino; Hangedup in the vacant rooms of the former main post office; Mike Moya of H Ṛ Ṣ Ṭ A in the foyer of the Gartenbaukino; Elfin Saddle in the kitchen of an old Viennese apartment; Matana Roberts at a public exhibition; and Do Make Say Think at Franziskanerplatz and at Porgy & Bess."--Container

Depuis plusieurs années, la saxophoniste et clarinettiste Matana Roberts est partie à la recherche de ses ancêtres musicaux américains, africains et européens - entre la Louisiane, le Togo ou l'Écosse. Mais son art fermement lyrique est moins évocatoire d'une histoire brouillée par tant de tragédies, qu'invocatoire des histoires que les hommes trouvent toujours à se raconter pour réinventer une vie à venir
