Kalyan Pathak’s Jazz Mata Quartet (Words, Songs and Poems from India)(FREE)
From ancient Sanskrit language chants to medieval bhakti tradition songs in Hindi, from poems of Tagore in Bengali to modern folkloric dance songs; the Jazz Mata takes you on a journey from a song and rhythm perspective, while going through different modes, raga melodies and intricate meters and beats.
At times modal, raga-based and chant-like, and at times laden with hypnotic grooves and jazz harmony, the music of Jazz Mata evokes a distinct mood.

WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 21
is the first encounter of the tango with Afro-Peruvian music, a journey integrating sounds born from the need of communication and exchange in Latin American music. The penetrating passion of tango together with the sensuality and mischievousness of the Afro-Peruvian and creole genres give life to this meshed, fluid and organic approach from Sofía Tosello and Yuri Juárez. From the bandoneon’s melancholic sounds to the rogue beat of the cajon, Tangolandó recreates in a perfect balance timeless tangos through the freshness of Peru’s coastal contemporary music.
