THE RUMBLE IN THE JUNGLE IN CONCERT
A boxing ring is set on stage. Six musicians are set in the middle. Live audio samples are used. Legendary boxer Muhammad Ali takes you through his mind as I K A R A I sets his most legendary fight to music. Our new concert, MUHAMMAD, is a full-length musical telling of Ali’s movements and thoughts in the 1974 world heavyweight championship fight he ultimately won.
But Ali’s biggest fights were outside the ring. As a civil rights activist, a poet, storyteller and a devout Muslim, his social struggles became a part of his identity as a famous sportsman.
MUHAMMAD gives a sound to physical and social confrontations and is an ode to the greatest boxer of all time.
