The Jazzschool Institute presents two student ensembles for our second day of end-of-semester performances! TRADITIONAL NORTH INDIAN ENSEMBLE Directed by Arjun Verma, this instrumental ensemble is devoted to the rhythmic, melodic and harmonic underpinnings of North Indian music. The ensemble presents a piece combining portions composed by Ali Akbar Khan with spontaneous improvisations. The piece will begin with a brief alaap, or melodic section without fixed meter, and will continue with a theme in the 10 beat rhythm cycle, jhaptaal, ending with an intricate rhythmic jhala section and dynamic finish. Featuring Eli Goldlink, piano; Rikki Gibson, guitar; and William Rossel, tabla. BRAZILIAN ENSEMBLE Marcos Silva directs this ensemble focusing on the amalgam of Brazilian and American jazz styles of music and techniques. Featuring Tiffany Austin, vocal; Madison Bohrer, tenor sax; Dillon Vado, vibes; Casey Mattson, piano; Andrew Lion, bass; and Zachary Mondlick, drums. Full schedule listed here.
