Led by Paul Livingstone, Los Angeles based sitarist and one of the few American disciples of the legendary Pt. Ravi Shankar and Pt. Rajeev Taranath, the ‘ragajazz’ of the Arohi Ensemble weaves the melodically and rhythmically intricate ragas of India and the counterpoint of chamber music into a unique sound, all in the spirit of improvisation. These leading virtuosi from India, Venezuela, and Los Angeles collaborate on a fascinating and exhilarating synthesis of global music traditions: Indian classical music, Western classical music, and jazz.
Co-sponsored with the Orpheus Chamber Music Ensemble.
