Featuring Oberlin alumni Toyin Spellman-Diaz ’94 on oboe and Monica Ellis ’95 on bassoon, Imani Winds is beloved for its spirit of adventure and broad range of influences. Together since 1997, the quintet has delivered its innovative and eclectic sound—an amalgam of European, African, American, and Latin influences—to venues around the world.
A favorite performance partner of Imani Winds, fellow New Yorker Gilbert Kalish serves on the faculty at Stony Brook University. His widely varied discography numbers some 100 recordings and explores avenues both classical and contemporary.
