Akshara Music Ensemble performance with Bala Skandan on Violin, Mridangam and Konnakkol, Max ZT on Hammered Dulcimer, Dave Eggar on Cello and Suryaksha Deshpande on Tabla.
B’Rhythm conceptualized by Bala Skandan and Sonali Skandan seeks to create a living dialogue between Indian Classical music and dance and world percussion sounds and urban movements. Inspired by the rhythms we see and hear in NYC every day, this project is an eccentric approach to combining classical sounds, movements, and storytelling with urban street arts. We believe this is a unique endeavor and one which addresses the evolving nature of our cultural landscape and city. Musicians and dancers will explore the synergies and cross-rhythms of Indian Classical percussion played on Mridangam, Tabla, Kanjira, and Vocal Percussion ( Konnokkol) alongside instruments such as Frame drum, Djembe, and Cajon. The projects bring together some of NYC’s finest talents.
Bala Skandan – Music lead and composition, and Mridangam | Shiva Goshal on Tabla | Rich Stien on Djembe and Frame Drum | Kabilan Jegenathan on Kanjira | Brinda Guha – Lead choreographer and dancer | Team of Dancers – Arielle Rosales, Noni Byrd-Gibbs, Emi De Olio, Indigo Robinson, and Rashmi Rajendran.
Genre: Indian Classical, Urban Contemporary, World Percussion
