2. Sumari

Date: Monday, April 13, 2015
Time: 8pm
Venue: Quinn’s (330 Main Street, Beacon, New York 12508)
Tickets: donation
Genre: nu jazz/world/avant garde

Matt Lavelle, Jack DeSalvo & Tom Cabrera – Sumari – will be featured at Quinn’s in Beacon NY on April 13. Evidenced on the seven tracks of their debut CD, Sumari (Unseen Rain Records), the ensemble creates tapestries of sound, at once familiar and defiantly new. Fusing unexpected traditions and distant folk forms with post-modern chamber music and free jazz, Sumari remains unclassifiable. While this trio maintains a deep connection to the exploratory trio CoDoNa, Sumari sits on the sonic nether-regions of their 1980s counter-parts.

The harmolodic creations of Matt Lavelle, Jack DeSalvo and Tom Cabrera, interspersed with profound space and silences, forge a bold new path in contemporary music.

3. Afro Roots: Africa Meets India

Date: Tuesday, April 14, 2015
Time: 7:30pm
Venue: 647 Columbus Ave near W 92nd st (Goddard Riverside)
Ticket: donation
Genre: Afrikan meets Indian music

Afrika meets India is an innovative convergence of classical Indian raga melody, traditional Zimbabwean mbira song, and a grooving blend of Indian and African rhythm.

Featuring- Eric Fraser (bansuri), Abhik Mukherjee (sitar), Naren Budhkar (tabla), Kevin Nathaniel Hylton (mbira), Salieu Suso (kora), Giancarlo Luiggi (hosho)

Formed in 2014, this young band has performed at the NYC Drive East Festival, WKCR Ragas Live Festival and more.
“With Afrika Meets India, centuries of celebrated musical traditions dance together – and perhaps return to their common origins – as the ragas of India find common ground with African chants, rhythms and melodies.

Grounded by tradition but guided by the spirit of spontaneous improvisation no two Afrika Meets India concerts are alike.

– David Ellenbogen (WKCR 89.9 FM-NY)”

4. Rob Mazurek Black Cube SP

Date: Tuesday, April 14, 2015
Time: 8pm
Venue: ShapeShifter Lab (18 Whitwell Pl, between Carroll St & 1st St, Brooklyn, NY 11215, 646-820-9452)
Ticket: $25
Genre: jazz/post-Tropicália modern psychedelic spiritual composed music

Rob Mazurek’s newest ensemble, Black Cube SP, features Mazurek’s long standing São Paulo Underground trio with the addition of rabeca (Brazilian viola) master Thomas Rohrer. Rohrer earned his stripes on the keening rabeca through intense studies with the instrument’s leading practitioners in Brazil’s northeast. This performance is a record release celebration for the ensemble’s debut record, Return the Tides (Cuneiform), a startlingly cathartic and magisterial post-Tropicália modern psychedelic spiritual composed and recorded in the weeks after the unexpected passing of Mazurek’s mother.

5. 17th MATA 2015 Festival

Date: Tuesday, April 14 through Saturday, April 18, 2015
Time: 8pm
Venue: The Kitchen (512 W 19th St, New York, New York 10011)
Tickets: $20
Genre: wild variety of today’s music

The MATA Festival celebrates its seventeenth year as the leading international festival for emerging composer talent by showcasing the wild variety of today’s compositional climate with a sweeping range of original compositions from around the globe. Among the Festival’s featured works are eleven American and nine world premieres—including three MATA commissions—representing voices from Croatia to Iran, Bolivia to China. “A bellwether of shifting tides” (Village Voice), the Festival’s non-dogmatic stylistic range is dizzying, offering a percussion sculpture, a punk-inspired scream-song, works involving lamps and light bulbs, a dancer connected to a pulley-driven prepared piano, and more in performances by Sweden’s Curious Chamber Players, in their US debut, along with the Talea Ensemble, Momenta Quartet, Bearthoven, and others.

Tuesday, April 14: Curiouser and Curiouser 

MATA welcomes Sweden’s Curious Chamber Players for a night that moves from the primeval depths skyward. Bolivian composer Carlos Guittiérez Quiroga’s Jintili posits the beginnings of the world with natural sounds born of natural materials. Tomi Räisänen’s Stheno imagines the Gorgon’s mourning, what Pindar says was the basis for all music. Wang Lu and Malin Bång’s music deals with the detritus of the urban – Berlin’s constant remaking in the case of Bång’s palinode and the daily life of Xi’an, Wang’s hometown, in her MATA-commissioned work Urban Inventory. Johann Svensson’s diamond dust gives life to the tiny ice crystals that together form the clouds. The evening ends with a new work from MATA’s own Todd Tarantino.

Wednesday, April 15: Mad Filaments and Ungovernable Shoots 

MATA goes full blast in an unforgettable evening that probes all that we understand to work together to create music. Norwegian composer Bjørn Erik Haugen’s Summon transforms images to sound and back to image, questioning if what we see is really what we intend it to be. Mirela Ivičević, in her Orgy of References, takes on the role of the composer, their resumes in particular, giving a new take on the litany of accolades that fill them. Meanwhile American Megan Grace Beugger’s Liaison connects a dancer to a prepared piano via a pulley system – what is more important: the sound or the performance? Serbian composer Jasna Veličković tears apart the instrument, creating music instead with electromagnets in her sUn. Finally, Music for Lamps – the trio of Adam Basanta, Max Stein, and Julian Stein – puts forth a clean slate in which tens of table lamps outfitted with transducers create their own music.

Thursday, April 16: Unreasonable Visions

The Momenta Quartet joins with friends for a fascinating evening of games, visions, and sublimities. From Teheran comes Idin Samimi Mofakham’s transcendent Mirage, a slowly unfolding apparition for percussion and trio, while Eric Nathan‘s vision for the quartet is heard in the compelling Four to One. Impossibilities are ever-present in Michalis Paraskakis’s Not Yet II, in which a clarinet’s subtle microtonal bendings, blendings, and beatings challenge the quartet. Oboe and percussion join the fray for Daniel Moreira’s Das Nein-Doch Spiel: a persuasive take on the unwinnable children’s game of yes and no, while Guy Barash’s ambitious String Quartet poses its own challenges. The evening closes with a new work from MATA’s own Alex Weiser.

Friday, April 17: Bearthoven Buckshot

The eccentrically named trio of piano, percussion, and bass known as Bearthoven takes the stage with a widely varied program of new music that challenges the notion that the instrumentation makes the music. The evening begins with the fluorescences and electronics of Jonathan Nangle’s lambent untitled (after Dan Flavin) and continues with the improvisational talents of Amanda Schoofs as she joins Bearthoven for her graphic score, Intimate Addictions. David Broome’s atomistic Ominousty scatters glitches from Billy Joel’s “Honesty” into millions of pieces, while Fjóla Evans’s Shoaling rumbles in murmuring and growing streams. MATA’s own Du Yun performs a new work with bass, and the evening concludes with the UK’s Adam de la Cour’s MATA-commissioned Corporate Talent Factor’s Next Top Idol!, a talent competition the likes of which has never been seen on these shores.

Saturday, April 18: Incomparable Contrivances

MATA closes its festival with Talea Ensemble in an evening of percussion-rich works that explore technology, machines, and resonances. Dan VanHassel’s Ghost in the Machine gives voice to the natural by dismantling the apparatus of logic and allowing percussion to sound without performers. Irish composer Ann Cleare’s new MATA-Commissioned percussion mini-concerto, explores the resonant qualities of a handmade sculpture. Monoliths are made audible in the sonic walls of Sam Pluta’s three-percussion concerto in binary: Machine Language, and curves sound in Davor Branimir Vincze’s shape-shifting Inflection Point with its surprising midpoint. From Israel comes Ofir Klemperer’s A Love Song: a punk-inspired challenge to the limitations of instrumental sound. Finally, Matthias Kranebitter’s packthebox(withfivedozenofmyliquorjugs) attempts to make a pangram audible.

6. Sacred Kurdish Music: Ali Akbar Moradi

Ticket: $25
Genre: Kurdish folklore music from Iran

Sacred Kurdish music, rarely heard in the US, will be performed by Ali Akbar Moradi, recognized as the greatest living master of the tanbur. This ancient lute, played with a distinctive plucking and strumming style, is venerated for its role in traditional Sufi ceremonies. Moradi performs meditative improvisations from the repertoire of the Yarsan people, followers of a mystical faith in Kurdistan, in western Iran. He will be accompanied on tombak and daf drums by his son, Kourosh Moradi.

7. Invisible Circle w. SHRAF & Trabajo

Date: Wednesday, April 15, 2015
Time: 7pm
Venue: Secret Project Robot Art Experiment (389 Melrose St, Brooklyn, New York 11237)
Ticket: $6 or $12 (with CD)
Genre: devotional-drone-meditation-psychedelic/electronica

This is the release party for the new self titled record by Invisible Circle.
Entry for the show will be 6 dollars, or 12 with a copy of the new record.
The new Self Titled LP by Invisible Circle started with a simple concept, to record Invisible Circle in the same style as modern pop music. Some songs previously only recorded on 4 tracks, as well as some new, were layered with multitudes of synths and effects, some very key guest performances, and a choir to create the most Hi-Fi recordings of Invisible Circle to date.

Produced by Max Hodes of UltraMega Sound, and featuring guest performances by John Colpitts (Oneida, Man Forever), Alexandra Drewchin (Eartheater, Guardian Alien), Taraka Larsen (Prince Rama), Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Colin Langenus (USAISAMONSTER, Colin L Orchestra, Alien Whale), Max Hodes (The Wild Beyond, Colin L Orchestra), Adam Apuzzo (Drunken Foreigner Band) and Bryce Aubrey, this recording represents the most fully realized vision of Invisible Circle’s songs to date.

Invisible Circle will be performing two sets at this event, one, an accostic pump organ performance of material from the new LP, and a set of mostly new material. For all interested, the new record will be played in its entirety before the show.

Also performing:
SHRAF is Queens-based producer and singer Ashraf Rijal. His music swims in the deep end with 80s R&B, 90s boom-bap, and 00s bedroom soul. SHRAF is currently recording his debut full-length LP Griot-G-Homie-La. He is also a recent inductee into the “Funky Brothers Who Dance Weird” social club, which also counts the YouTube ghosts of Marvin Gaye and Teddy Pendergrass as members.

Trabajo  (
Trabajo was formed by TJ Richards and Yuchen Lin – March 2011 in Brooklyn NY.
“Trabajo, an electronic duo from Ridgewood, Queens played a set of industrial-tinged dance music that featured gamelan samples, culled from Nonesuch albums, Indonesian tape blogs, and live performances from YouTube. Their energy was infectious as the room approached half-full, and they fused heavy bass beats with bell and gong sounds.” PITCHFORK

9.  Illapu + Colombina Parra + Ana Tijoux (from Chile)

Date: Friday, April 17, 2015
Time: 7:30pm
Venue: Michael Schimmel Center at Pace University (3 Spruce Street, New York, NY 10038, 212-346-1715)
Tickets: $29
Genre: Chilean folk/indie rock & hip hop

On Friday April 17th, Pace University is proud to present Gracias a la Vida: The Rebel Spirit of Chile’s Legendary Voice. It is a special celebration of the life and music of Violeta Parra, the immensely influential Chilean singer, songwriter, folklorist and political force.

This historic multi-generational tribute will feature three of Chile’s most important musical voices: the young singer/songwriter Colombina Parra, Andean folk heroes Illapu, and the Chilean hip-hop artist Ana Tijoux.

Violeta Parra [1917-1967] has long been revered for her songs of struggle, defiance, and triumph, as well as for her work in the revival of Latin American folk traditions and instruments. Violeta Parra’s work -both as a singer-songwriter and field musicologist- fostered the birth of the Nueva Canción Chilena (New Chilean Song) era, a back-to-roots, politically charged folk song movement in the late ’60s and early ’70s. In spite of the brutal repression of the 17-year Pinochet dictatorship, her music’s influence remained unaltered both inside and outside of Chile. And today, many of the acclaimed exponents of the new Chilean pop cite her as a fundamental influence.

An example of Parra’s larger impact is her signature song, “Gracias a la vida” (Thanks to Life) which has become an international classic (and anthem), covered by a wide range of artists including Joan Baez, Mercedes Sosa, Plácido Domingo, and Michael Bublé.

This event brings together for the first time a trio of exciting Chilean artists whose music and message is deeply inspired by Parra, in styles ranging from nueva canción to rock and pop.

Illapu, founded in Chile in 1971, are well known for their sophisticated interpretations of Andean folklore and rhythms. Illapu (“lightning bolt” in Chile’s indigenous Quechua language) rose to fame for their guitar-based songs featuring politically-pointed lyrics set against pan flutes and Andean rhythms. In 1981, upon returning to Chile after a tour, the military dictatorship refused to allow them back into the country. Thus began a prolonged exile for the group in France and Mexico. When they returned to Chile in 1988, at their first concert they were cheered on by a crowd of 100,000 supporters.

Colombina Parra is a rising alternative rock singer-songwriter who came of age in the Chilean grunge/alternative rock scene of the 1990s. The niece of Violeta, Colombina achieved widespread success in her own right through early video exposure on MTV Latin America. Her most recent CD, “Detrás del Vidrio” (Behind the Glass), was nominated for Best Pop Album in Chile in 2013.

Ana Tijoux first found acclaim as the female MC of the Chilean hiphop group Makiza. Born in France to Chilean parents who fled to Europe during Augusto Pinochet’s dictatorship, Tijoux moved back to Chile as a teenager and found a home in the emerging hip-hop scene of Santiago. Her solo career has brought her success throughout Latin America. Tijoux garnered mainstream attention in the U.S. when her single “1977” was featured on the TV series Breaking Bad.

10. Innove Gnawa Band w. Spirit Family Reunion & Morgan O’Kane

Date: Friday, April 17, 2015
Time: 9pm
Venue: Music Hall of Williamsburg (66 N 6th St, Brooklyn, New York)
Tickets: $15
Genre: Gnawa music/Americana/one man band

Gnawa music is a rich repertoire of spiritual healing songs and rhythms. Its well preserved heritage combines ritual poetry with traditional music and dancing. Gnawa music is performed in a “Lila,” an entire night of celebration, dedicated to healing and trance guided by the Maalem and his group. Maalem Hassan Ben Jaafer, who is a one of a kind master, inherited Gnawa Music from his father Sidi Abdullah Ben Jaafer Sultan Gnawa, and will be playing alongside the young generation master Samir LanGus who learned Gnawa music in the streets of Agadir, Morocco.

Concert review: InnoVe Gnawa Band & Faith at Mercury Lounge (NY)

Spirit Family Reunion play homegrown American music to stomp, clap, shake and holler with. Ever since they started singing together on the street corners, farmer’s markets and subway stations of New York City, their songs have rung-out in a pure and timeless way.

Morgan O’Kane is an exuberant and intensely talented musician from Charlottesville, Virginia–residing in NYC. His distinct sound is an evolution of his work with”scum billy” band Casa De Chihuahua and time spent playing in the New York Subway system. In 2010 Morgan is emerging above ground, equipped with a suitcase, kick pedal, banjo, a sense of urgency and a debut full length recording, “Nine Lives”. Morgan is one of the most capable one man bands we’ve ever seen!

13. Brooklyn Raga Massive performs Terry Riley’s “In C”

Date: Saturday, April 18, 2015
Time: 8:30pm
Venue:  JACK (505 ½ Waverly Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11238 Between Fulton – Atlantic in Clinton Hill, C or G train to Clinton-Washington)
Tickets: $20
Genre: Indian classical music, fusing with all kinds of music genres

Hear this classic of 20th Century experimental music played on Indian classical instruments!

Brooklyn Raga Massive is a collective of musicians and music lovers rooted in Indian classical music. They have presented a weekly concert series and jam session for almost 3 years, currently at Studio 487 in Gowanus, Brooklyn. While devoted to Indian classical music, they easily mix it up with musicians of many backgrounds. A typical BRM Jam Session night will feature sitar, sarod, bansuri and tabla alongside violin, guitar, bass, saxophone, kora, mbira, daf and more. BRM musicians are of the highest calibre and have performed at concerts and festivals around the world.

Indian classical music is usually a soloistic, lonely affair. Hindustani ensembles rarely number more than 3 or 4 and usually it is just 2 (melody and percussion). As BRM’s community grew past critical mass, BRM co-founder Neel Murgai was excited about the possibility of creating a super group of musicians, the Brooklyn Raga Massive All Stars: an orchestra with sitar, sarod, bansuri, violin, dilruba, harmonium, tabla, vocals, violin, cello, bass, guitar, vibes and more. He realized that Terry Riley’s seminal minimalist composition “In C” would be a special way to achieve that.
