The dynamic fusion of classical Indian music and jazz made popular by John McLaughlin and L. Shankar of Shakti are celebrated Friday night in the Shed.
The music of Shades of Shakti combines intricate fast melodies, virtuosic rhythms of the tabla and percussion, and the hypnotic tones of the sārangī, a highly resonant, ancient bowed instrument of India.
This unique concert brings together some of Wellington’s finest musicians, Justin Firefly Clarke (guitar), Tristan Carter (violin), Chetan Ramlu (tabla), Thomas Friggens (percussion), joined by special guest sārangī maestro Sangeet Mishra direct from India’s holiest city, Varanasi.
A rich collaboration bringing communities together and celebrating human diversity through music.
