Fred Ho and the Evolution of Afro-Asian New American Multicultural Music
For more than three decades the Chinese-American composer and baritone saxophonist Fred Ho has been producing a distinctive brand of genre-busting cross-cultural music that serves as both an expression of his radical political philosophy and a direct response to what he perceives as the exploitation of Third World musical traditions by contemporary pop imperialists. Although he has garnered a considerable reputation in the jazz world (and continues to feel a special kinship with the genre's avant-garde heritage), Ho now prefers to identify his unique East/West creative fusion with his own apt (albeit unwieldy) appellation, “Afro-Asian New American Multicultural Music.”
