An Hour with Ibarra

Music faculty member and percussionist Susie Ibarra sat down with New York-based composer and performer Jeremiah Cymerman for his 5049 Podcast, which features long-form, one-on-one conversations with some of  “the most important and distinctive living musicians.”

Of Ibarra, Cymerman says: “As a drummer, there is really no one like her, a top notch improviser who turns her kit into a fine tuned orchestra.”

The two discussed Ibarra’s upbringing in Texas—where, as a teenager, she opened for the Flaming Lips—her early days in New York, and much more.
