“Jesusa’s Laugh from Loiza to Langa” is a performance collage that combines music, text, movement and recorded sound. Inspired by a recent trip to South Africa, the piece is a vehicle Jenoure’s created to help her make sense of that powerful experience. Jenoure’s voice and works blend unique elements through stories and soundscapes: improvisation, rhythmic influences from her Puerto Rican and Jamaican heritage, urban references and ideas influenced by her world travels. She has performed and recorded with John Carter, Archie Shepp, Leroy Jenkins, Henry Threadgill, Lawrence “Butch” Morris, Reggie Workman and Dr. Umezu among others, and has led numerous ensembles and workshops.
