Mon 06/29 | Ensemble “Surabhi” (Indo-Afro-flamenco) featuring an “all-star” world music line-up and CD release


The ensemble “Surabhi” is led by Indian veena artist Saraswathi Ranganathan. The group has been performing for the past 8 years, delighting audiences with lush rustic soundscapes of flamenco music and Afro rhythms woven into the rich sounds of Indian Classical ragas embellished with blues and folk melodies. Performances often include both music and dance from the Indian, African, Spanish flamenco traditions.

Surabhi will feature an outstanding line-up from Chicago’s musical theater scene, including Ronnie Malley, Arabic oud (“The White Snake”), Sara Ranganathan, veena (“The Jungle Book”), Bob Garrett, percussion (Sting’s “The Last Ship”) and Carlo Basile, Spanish guitar (“Cascabel with chef Rick Bayless”). South Indian Tabla master, Dhanajay Kunte and Senegalese percussionist,  will add stunning percussion elements to the performance with flamenco dancer, Marisela Tapia and South Indian dancer, Kinnari Vora adding movement to the mix! Saraswathi Ranganathan will be releasing a new CD this evening as well.
