Albino Mbie returns to The Church! If you were lucky enough to see him last summer for Hampton’s Jazz Fest you know how thrilling it is to have him back, and this time as an artist-in-residence! A multi-award-winning musician, guitarist, singer, composer, sound engineer, music producer, and a Berklee College of Music Professor, Mbie is a musical force that has played all over the world. As a part of his residency, Mbie will perform his latest work in a concert titled Me And You, inspired by a song on his new album.

The evening will include a concert peppered with anecdotes and comments from Mbie on his new work and conclude with a Q&A.

While in residence Albino plans to continue the development of his unique sound, combining and capturing the energy of different musical traditions to create a unified and original musical style.

Mbie moved to the US to attend Berklee in 2009, being among the first Africans awarded a full tuition scholarship via the Berklee African Scholars Program. In 2013, he graduated with a dual major in Music Production & Sound Engineering and Guitar Performance and dual minors in Acoustics and Electronics. Since then, he has shared his Mozambican roots—music, dance, culture, and native languages enriched by the experience of living and studying in the US with the rest of the world, combining rhythmic patterns and musical concepts to create a unique Marrabenta, Nikatche, Afro-Pop, and Moz- Jazz sound.



The Church was established in 2019 by artists Eric Fischl and April Gornik. Housed in a deconsecrated 19th century church, its doors were opened in April 2021. Our mission is to foster creativity and to honor the living history of Sag Harbor as a maker village. The East End represents an exceptional artistic legacy, spanning the practices of indigenous art of several centuries ago, Abstract Expressionists of the mid 20th Century, and the many celebrated writers, makers, musicians, and visual artists of the recent past and current moment. Core programming includes visual art exhibitions, concerts and events, educational programming, workshops, lectures, and an artist’s residency.
