Leroy Jenkins, Hamza El Din, & Hyo-shin Na (l to r), seated at a table with Na playing an oud, taken during their retreat at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program, prior to their participation in the 6th Other Minds Music Festival in San Francisco in March of 2000. Born in 1932, Jenkins is an American jazz violinist, violist, and composer, and one of the most important musicians to emerge from the AACM (Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians), the legendary collective of which he was a member until his death in 2007. Most associated with the style of free jazz, Jenkins has performed with a number of famous jazz ensembles. The Egyptian born Hamza El Din was an oud player and pioneering world music composer whose works have influenced everyone from Steve Reich, Terry Riley and the Grateful Dead. Throughout his life he endeavored to combine elements of the traditional music of Nubia, Egypt, and later in his life Japan, within more formal structures. Hyo-shin Na is a Korean-born composer now living in San Francisco whose compositions often combine Asian and Western instruments and styles of playing in manner in which the integrity of the different tonalities is maintained. She has received the coveted Korean National Composers Prize twice and has heard her works performed through Asia, North America, and Europe.
