The punk rock attitude will save you. Mali Obomsawin and Magdalena Abrego are two improvising artists equally comfortable in free jazz and indie rock, bonded in the language of experimentation. Their upcoming duo album Greatest Hits is a journey through songs penned by Obomsawin that explore decay and delicate moments – cradled by Abrego’s worldbuilding and evocative guitar playing.

Mali Obomsawin is a bassist, singer, and composer from Odanak First Nation and one of GRAMMY.com’s top ten emerging jazz artists to watch this year. Her debut album Sweet Tooth (Out of Your Head Records, 2022) garnered international acclaim and was named in ‘best of the year’ lists from The Guardian, NPR, and JazzTimes upon its release. Evocative and thunderous, Sweet Tooth delivers a gripping and dynamic performance, seamlessly melding chorale-like spirituals, folk melodies, and post-Albert Ayler free jazz. Obomsawin’s ensemble occupies a musical universe completely their own, bringing skronk and reverence to every stage.

Magdalena Abrego is a New York-based guitarist, composer, and teaching artist. Utilizing the languages of free jazz and experimental rock, Magdalena’s music confronts issues of musical tradition through genre-bending improvisation. Magdalena presently serves as a faculty member in the Contemporary Musical Arts program at the New England Conservatory. Her expertise has garnered invitations to deliver guest lectures and provide guidance to ensembles at esteemed music institutions throughout the Northeast, including Berklee College of Music and Dartmouth College.

Claire Dickson is an experimental vocalist, composer, and sound artist based in Brooklyn. Her projects embrace a range of musical aesthetics and modes, including songwriting, improvisation, ambient, text scores, electronic music, and mythmaking. In 2022, she released Starland, an album inspired by a residency in the Arctic. In 2024, she will release an album with myrtle, her ongoing collaboration with Camila Ortiz, as well as her debut solo album with New Amsterdam Records.
