8:00pm: Shragge/Chess quartet

The newly formed quartet brings together several existing longterm musical collaborations. Drawing from traditional Arabic music, Indian Classical Raga, the meditative music of the Shakuhachi and Free Jazz the quartet creates a captivating and adventurous sound. The combination of two end blown flutes, the ney and the shakuhachi, is at the forefront of their sound along with a unique instrumentation that also includes: oud, morsing, sarod, sarangi and kanjira.
