Amirtha Kidambi: Elder Ones
Please note, this event has expired.
Join us for a concert with experimental quartet Elder Ones featuring lead vocalist and harmonium player Amirtha Kidambi.
Elder Ones fuses classical and jazz music with international influences to create a symphony of avant-garde sound. Kidambi was formally trained in classical music but felt the pull of free jazz drawing her toward a different path. Influenced by Carnatic music of the Indian subcontinent as well as avant-gardists like Nono and Stockhausen, she creates drones on the harmonium — an old, air-powered keyboard — and coaxes her bandmates into musically ripping this foundation apart.
