JACOB H. CARRUTHERS FOR INNER CITY STUDIES
Aquilla Sadalla is a dynamic performance artist who has helped to cultivate an entire legacy of creative music using the first instrument: The Voice. Over the many years, through many a song, Aquilla has reminded us to "remember the breath" and it's power as a featured vocalist with Samana(1992-98), The Circle of Sound, Thrill Jockey's National Trust(2005) and The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Moving gracefully through an entire life of music, Aquilla brings together a 7 piece unit named "Sedallah" (a respelling of Sadalla, which translates to mean "angel of God"). Sedallah performs using flute, reeds, keyboard/synth, guitar, electric bass guitar, drums/percussion and vocals. Stylistically drawing from Latin-jazz, Soul, Electronic, Caribbean and African Blues harmonies and rhythms, Sadallah furthers 'freedom of the mind' and 'movement of the soul'.
