Artist Bio

Born to missionaries in Atlanta, Angel Bat Dawid grew up moving as her parent’s ministry mandated. From Georgia to Kentucky and Kenya, the family finally settled in Chicago’s south suburbs where she would go on to study clarinet and music education.

In 2014, Bat Dawid recommitted herself to a life in music. Giving up her day job, she followed in-roads through Chicago’s creative music community with touchstones like David Boykin’s Sonic Healing Ministries sessions and Damon Locks’ Black Monument Ensemble. She soon formed her own improvisationally-focused collective, The Participatory Music Coalition, and developed a performance residency at Elastic Arts, dubbed the Mothership 9 Multimedia Series.

Inspired by everything from the poetry of Margaret Burroughs to Yusef Lateef and even Mozart, Bat Dawid made her debut, The Oracle, with International Anthem in 2019. Eschewing conventional labels, she describes her work in no uncertain terms: "This is Black music.” On The Oracle, she echoes ancestral agonies through blues and spirituals, a conversion theory she attributes to the late Milford Graves.

When asked what’s next, Bat Dawid is lucid. “I have really big artistic goals and hope to expand compositionally. I’ve always wanted to write a symphony and I’m really interested in film scoring.”

A new voice has rumbled forth with clarity and intention from Chicago’s Southside, reminding us that the past is still present and the future is full of radical hope.
