Hannibal Lokumbe (b01/01/1948)

Hannibal Lokumbe resides in Bastrop, Texas with his family. His career in music spans over four decades. This journey has seen him go from the cotton fields of Elgin, Texas where he heard the hymns of his grandparents, to the stages of Carnegie Hall and much of the world. At age thirteen he was given a trumpet by his mother. A year later his band, The Soul Masters, was backing up such icons as Jackie Wilson, Otis Redding, Etta James, Lightning Hopkins and T-Bone Walker. He is the recipient of numerous awards including a Bessie award, the NEA, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

He has composed works for the Kronos Quartet, the Philadelphia, Baltimore, Cleveland, Detroit and Houston symphonies. His groundbreaking opera African Portraits was performed and recorded by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Daniel Barenboim and has been performed nearly two hundred times since its November 11, 1990 Carnegie Hall début. His oratorio Dear Mrs Parks was commissioned and performed by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in February 2005 and recorded in March 2009. He spent twenty-five years in New York City playing trumpet and recording with some of his jazz heroes including Gil Evans, Pharaoh Sanders, Roy Haynes, Elvin Jones and McCoy Tyner among many others. In 1974 he formed the Sunrise Orchestra and for over fifteen years toured the world playing in every major music festival from Istanbul to China.
