From ‘SAY TRIPPIN’, a new documentary film project by Diane Allford in collaboration with Heroes Are Gang Leaders
Heroes Are Gang Leaders is an avant-garde/experimental Jazz Poetry band comprised of 12 dynamic interdisciplinary artists looking to redefine the concept of music/sound and its relationship to the instrument and literary text. With the announcement of the overseas tour and The Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, the band is on the verge of critical and commercial acclaim after having had a severe setback two years ago. There are several narratives running through the vein of HAGL, which is the group‘s strength and revealed through a montage of interviews, performances interactions and dialogue. The 12 musicians, poets, photographers, and singers have each made significant contributions in their respective fields.
