It’s a double celebration as we ring in the New Year and wish Philly rising star drummer Nazir Ebo a happy 24th birthday!

This New Year’s Eve, Nazir Ebo will take the stage of Solar Myth surrounded by family, friends and special musical guests as he turns 24 years old, just in time for the calendar to turn over to 2024.  Already a veteran musician at his young age, Ebo was recently declared “the Philadelphia jazz scene’s next breakthrough talent” by WRTI. The second drum prodigy to emerge from his West Philadelphia home, following his older brother Justin Faulkner, Ebo is a product of the Clef Club and Anthony Tidd’s educational programs. Mentored by local legends including Jamaaladeen Tacuma and Bobby Zankel, he’s recently graduated to higher profile gigs as a sideman with Joshua Redman, Soweto Kinch, Kenneth Whalum III, George Burton and Logan Richardson. Ebo’s own electric quartet features guitarists Simon Martinez and Russell Gelman along with bassist Tone Whitfield.

The evening kicks off at 8:30 with a DJ set by KYON, aka drummer and Twitch streamer Kyon Williams, setting the tone for the evening with sounds spanning the spectrum from Afrofuturist jazz to progressive R&B and envelope-stretching dance music.
