This evening will feature a set of Jane Kramer, backed by Free Planet Radio, and then a set from Free Planet Radio.
Free Planet Radio, based in Asheville, NC is becoming one of the most exciting partnerships in world music today.
Their world-jazz-classical fusion is a trans-cultural canvas that is at times deeply reflective and at other times rhythmically mind-bending.
This ensemble is composed of River Guerguerian, Armenian-Egyptian born in Canada, an award-winning multi-percussionist / composer whose lyrical percussion style earned him a long-standing tenure with Turkish flutist virtuoso Omar Faruk Tekbilek; Eliot Wadopian, a two-time Grammy-award winner, proficient on string and electric basses, a 17 year member of the Paul Winter Consort. He’s also worked with Hal Galper, Glen Velez, and Eugene Friesen; Chris Rosser, an accomplished pianist, composer / producer, renowned for his outstanding performances on a variety of indigenous stringed instruments. He studied under the master Ali Akbar Khan.
These artists emerged from three of the country’s finest conservatories, and have established themselves in concert halls and studios, appearing on over 250 recordings and in 30 countries. Their individual talents have garnered worldwide recognition in Carnegie Hall, the Hong Kong World Music Festival, the Sydney Opera House, and the Madrid International Jazz Festival.
