The Ogún Meji Duo
After performing together in larger ensemble contexts, drummer Mark Lomax and tenor saxophonist Edwin Bayard have decided to expand their artistic voices by decreasing the ensemble size. Their first studio recording #BLACKLIVESMATTER (offered as a free download) has proven to be a powerful confluence of aesthetics (sampling, free improvisation, and social justice themes), and they are working on their next release ‘The Art of Sound.’ Bayard and Lomax have the unique ability to connect with the soul of their audiences, even in the most complex passages, through their mastery of several musical languages from the Blues to Hip-Hop.
