Sans Soleil is a multi-genre ritual duo focused on deepening Black and Asian American solidarity, created and led by Chris Williams and Patrick Shiroishi. The duo’s REDCAT premiere, Bandung, is an evening-length composition weaving field recordings, pan-Indigenous instrumentation, and free jazz expression, in collaboration with expanded ensemble members William Parker and Lesley Mok. Williams and Shiroishi have taken inspiration from social histories and their personal ancestral history and experiences, diving into cultural themes, as well as political underweavings. Connecting the past with the present while looking into the future, Sans Soleil blends musical genres while continuing to grow their collective voice.
