Sun Ra Arkestra

Sun Ra


Surreal. Astonishing. Unmissable.

The world-famous Sun Ra Arkestra returns to Melbourne International Jazz Festival for one night only.

The Arkestra’s iconic live performances are mind-altering, life-affirming and joyously unforgettable. One of the great cult-icons of jazz, pianist, composer and organist Sun Ra formed the Arkestra in the mid-1950s and led it until his death in 1993. His ensemble has continued performing and creating supernatural sounds ever since. Refreshing, original and certainly out of this world, this will be an exuberant and entirely memorable experience.
