The dazzling Sun Ra Arkestra will take Berlin to the stars


Get ready to embark on a sonic odyssey like no other as the enigmatic Sun Ra Arkestra takes center stage at the historic Theater des Westens in Berlin. As part of the Tingel Tangel event series, on November 1st, the jazz collective will present their latest album »Swirling« in homage to Sun Ra – the pioneer of Afrofuturism. 

The Vision is alive

For decades, the Sun Ra Arkestra has pushed the limits of musical expression by seamlessly blending jazz improvisation with experimental sounds. Sun Ra himself was greatly interested in technology, and from the 1960s onwards the Arkestra began incorporating electronic instruments into their performances and recordings, creating unique, unworldly sound textures and atmospheres. 

Since 1993 the collective has continued to spread Ra’s cosmic musical vision with legendary saxophonist and co-founder Marshall Allen at the forefront. Whether you’re a dedicated fan or a newcomer to the world of cosmic jazz, this is your chance to experience the Sun Ra Arkestra’s unique magic.
