Event Details

Baraka Moon's all original music ignites from the ancient Qawaali Sufi trance songs of Pakistan, Indian classical ragas, Middle Eastern overtones and African percussion, plus the Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo.

Sukhawat Ali Khan's energetic musical signature springs from ancient traditions. Sukhawat is the 12th generation of an unbroken lineage of master Pakistani and Indian vocalists. He can blend classical North Indian and Pakistani music into spellbinding cross-cultural ragas. Sukhawat’s thrilling voice comes straight from the heart, and he can wail on the harmonium like a blues harp.

Stephen Kent is acknowledged as one of the contemporary world's pioneer virtuosos on the Australian Aboriginal didgeridoo. During a twenty five year career with the didge, Stephen has developed an approach that is unmistakably his own, exploring a remarkable range of musical genres with extraordinary musicians from all over the map. He has twenty critically acclaimed CD’s, including five solo releases to his credit and produces "Music of the World" weekly on KPFA 94.1.

Peter Warren and Anastasi Mavrides have recently joined Baraka Moon's orbit bringing their distinctive melodic and driving dance elements to the mix. Peter is a world music drummer who has performed with musicians from West Africa, India, and Pakistan for over 20 years. Guitarist Anastasi is a musician and producer of many musical styles and media. He performs in several Bay Area world music ensembles and has toured with the Beach Boys.
