Ecosocialist Horizons Hour: June 5, 2013
This week on the hour of the horizon we are treated to a rare appearance of our special guest Fred Ho. Fred Ho is an author, composer, performer, baritone saxophone player, visionary, strategist, cancer warrior and founder of Scientific Soul Sessions. In this rare interview conducted by Quincy Saul, Ben Barson and Joel Kovel, Fred Ho will share his eco-centric concept of musical expression and production, a report from the front lines of his war with cancer, capitalism and “the matrix,” and his prophetic vision of revolutionary indigeneity — to save the planet and reclaim the commons.
This show includes a complete recording of the “Mumia Suite” written for US political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal, and excerpts from “The Sweet Science Suite: A Scientific Soul Music Honoring of Muhammad Ali,” performed and recorded by Fred Ho and the Green Monster big band.
