The Makanda Project is an ensemble dedicated to performing the previously unrecorded compositions of Makanda Ken McIntyre. The group is based in Boston, Massachusetts, (Makanda’s hometown) and was formed in 2005. Since then The Makanda Project has been giving regular free concerts in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood and also performing outside of Boston—sharing what they believe is something unique and special about Makanda’s music, and adding their own individual and collective voices to his compositions.

This concert is part of the annual Wesleyan Jazz Orchestra Weekend.
