“Tomorrow Comes The Harvest” was the first collaboration between Afro-beat creator & jazz legend and nigerian drummer Tony Allen (20 July 1940 – 30 April 2020) and Detroit techno DJ & Producer Jeff Mills.

Mills, driven by a deep desire to honor their previous collaborations, reconfigures the project into a trio once more. Joining him are Jean-Phi Dary, a veteran keyboardist who had been an integral part of their earlier performances, and the tabla virtuoso Prabhu Edouard. Together, they embark on a musical journey that embraces the essence of improvisation and creative exploration.

The project showcases the culmination of Mills’ and Allen’s shared vision, combining their respective backgrounds in Detroit Techno and Afrobeat to create an innovative musical experience based on improvisation.

“The profound cosmic chemistry that Jean-Phi Dary, Prabhu Edouard, and I cultivated while traveling together led us to an unimagined poetic realization. Tomorrow Comes The Harvest is an extension of the visionary work Tony Allen and I initiated, allowing us to traverse uncharted sonic territories as one cohesive musical vessel. This project embodies the ideals of freedom and open-mindedness” explains Jeff Mills.
