ANGEL
BAT
DAWID

Angel Bat Dawid is a Black American Composer, Improviser, Clarinetist, Pianist, Vocalist, Educator and DJ.  In 2019 she released her debut album "The Oracle" with Chicago label International Anthem Recording Co.. Recorded using only her cell phone in various locations, the album received wide-spread critical-acclaim with Pitchfork declaring it, “a vibrant, spiritual, free-jazz document of black life as it stands today.” Known for her prowess as a bandleader and performer, Angel has composed and performed several live pieces including “Requiem for Jazz" at the Hyde Park Jazz Festival and “Peace: A Suite for Skylanding,” commissioned by the Art Institute of Chicago for Yoko Ono’s outdoor Skylanding installation. She tours globally with her septet "Tha Brothahood," with whom she released the album "LIVE" in October 2020, which received numerous accolades, including making NPR Music’s “Best Albums of 2020” list and Pitchfork’s ‘Best New Music’.  Angel also leads the all- Black woman ensemble "Sistazz of the Nitty Gritty". As an educator, Angel teaches her “Great Black Music” course at Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center through Old Town School of Folk. She is clarinetist in Damon Locks’ Black Monument Ensemble, and she hosts a monthly music show on NTS Radio. All of this and more is why Pitchfork recently highlighted Angel‘s work in their recent “Pitchfork 25 Next'' cover story and included her on the “Pitchfork 25 Next “list, which identifies a select group of artist’s shaping the future of music. Named Winter JazzFest’s 2022 ‘Artist-in-Residence,’ where she debuted her “fearless expedition to ‘Afro Town’” (WBGO), and The Chicago Tribune’s “Chicagoan of the Year,” Angel returned to the stage this year for a performance at Carnegie Hall’s Afrofuturism Festival.
