Wednesday, November 14 ~~ 8PM

Age Restrictions: All Ages

DIN AT THE DEN is a monthly series showcasing musical artists whose clarity and focus cut through the noise of our daily lives. On November 14th we celebrate the one year anniversary of this series with Akenya and 5th Wave Collective! 5th Wave Collective is a Chicago-based classical music ensemble dedicated to the performance and promotion of music by female composers. Akenya is a multi-genre singer, pianist, composer, and arranger. Her music places a strong emphasis on jazz and incorporates elements of hip-hop, funk, pop, classical, and world music. The 5th Wave collective seeks to celebrate the legacy of female composers before us, and create a platform for those to come, and Akenya is that future. We’ll celebrate the unique sounds and versatile musicianship of these composers who are voicing their stories among all the din of oppression. Also invited are all 24 past musical acts from DIN AT THE DEN! Everyone is welcomed to reunite and celebrate the Chicago canon that they created. Past performers include Eshé & The Chromotherapists, Ivan Resendiz, Aris P, Snake Tongue w/ Jake Gordon Matt S Berger and Gustavo Cortiñas Fouilloux, St. Juice, Drea The Vibe Dealer, Ellie Kirk, King Rozzie, Sam Trump, Lucy Little, Rich Jones, Chai Tulani, Jeffrey Michael Austin, Growing Concerns Poetry Collective Jordanna, Schenay, Sam Hudgens, Lil Kydd, Jhon Myquale, Left Jones, Alysha Monique, and Wanees Zarour
