Makaya McCraven at Crosstown Theater
Makaya McCraven is a beat scientist. The bleeding edge drummer, producer, and sonic collagist is one of Chicago’s savviest cultural players and a multi-talented force whose inventive process & intuitive, cinematic style defy categorization.
McCraven has shared stages with artists such as Corey Wilkes, Bobby (Baabe) Irving (MilesDavis), Ari Brown, and Bernie Worrell and played in some of the world’s best clubs, festivals and arenas. Yet despite the accolades and fervent touring, McCraven’s focus remains on both creating music and moving the culture forward.
