On Sunday October 14, 2018, Washington, DC-area rapper and songwriter Vertical Zar will take the stage at Jammin Java with a full band, DJ, and crew of MCs for a concert to celebrate the release of his new genre-bending 16-track indy rap album, Ancient Cloud.

The Ancient Cloud album title is a metaphor for the timeless right of humans to rise above their daily challenges and troubles to be the artists, activists and visionaries within each of us. Vertical Zar rocks that concept in the album’s title track with the help of a choir, horn section and intricate, original lyrics and production over live band performances. Throughout the album, Zar raps across a spectrum of topics and concepts from being an artist, to the art of emceeing, to the ridiculous times we are living in, to musing about what the future will have in store for his daughter, Eleanore.

To create Ancient Cloud, Zar enlisted a diverse army of Washington, DC-area musicians, rappers and artists including long-time collaborator, producer, and pianist, David Ylvisaker, rappers such as Eddie Black (?Asylum), Dumi Right and G the Mastermind, DC jazz standouts Lori Williams and Al Williams, DJ Boom (Listen Vision), Rob Myers (Thievery Corporation), and many others. The result of this multi-year labor of love is a triumphant album, sample free, and overflowing with original lyrics and melodies, great rap and song, and sounds worthy of a space up in the Ancient Clouds.
