Fred Ho

New York-based Chinese-American saxophonist and social activist Fred Ho is one of the leading composers of his generation. He founded the Afro-Asian Music Ensemble in 1982, the Monkey Orchestra in 1990, and the Green Monster Big Band in 2008. His unique musical concept fuses Western and Eastern influences and is heavily inspired by Duke Ellington, Stravinsky, Sun Ra, and Asian operatic forms with black and yellow exploitation movie soundtracks. Ho was previously at BAM with Journey Beyond the West: The New Adventures of MONKEY (1997 Next Wave) and Once Upon a Time in Chinese America (2001 Next Wave).
