Ars Nova Workshop presents Philadelphia rising star Nazir Ebo and his eclectic, genre-bending quartet at Solar Myth on Saturday, May 6.

Already a veteran musician at the young age of 23, drummer Nazir 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, a contemporary twist on fusion that juggles funk, rock, hip-hop, electronica and ambient sounds into a unique sonic stew.
