Ithaca-based musician Nate Silas Richardson accompanies Dr. Bill Thomas on the Age of Disruption Tour in the unconventional pairing of “physician and musician.” A classically trained musician and jazz composer, Richardson runs Rep Studio in Ithaca and performs widely, including with John Brown’s Body, Sim Redmond Band, 10 Ft Ganja Plant and Black Castle. His latest soundtrack release for the Age of Disruption Tour, “1914 Reimagined by Nate Silas Richardson and Century Players,” features music from 1914 re-worked in various modern styles.
Samite (Sæm ē tay)
World-renowned musician and humanitarian Samite Mulondo brings live music and story telling to the Age of Disruption Tour’s Disrupt Dementia performance.
Samite was born and raised in Uganda, where his grandfather taught him to play the traditional flute. When he was twelve, a music teacher placed a western flute in his hands setting him on his way to becoming one of East Africa’s most acclaimed flutists. Samite is the subject of the PBS documentary Song of the Refugee. It was while filming this that Samite’s work as founder of Musicians for World Harmony began.
Samite is also featured in the award-winning documentary film Alive Inside.
