Pakistan and the Girnari Jogi Groove is an evening of art, music & film devoted to Pakistani and Central Asian cultures with a live musical performance by Tablapusher, plus a special screening of music performances by the Girnari Jogi Group and a film screening of the inventive animated short film Gul by Adnan Hussain. The Girnari Jogi group is a small ensemble of 7th and 8th generation musicians based out of Sindh, Pakistan. Jogis (not to be confused with yogis) are traditionally snake charmers who use the enchanting sounds of the murli to entrance snakes, humans and jinns.

"Pakistan & the Girnari Jogi Groove" is presented in conjunction with the Inside/Outside Gallery exhibition "The Art of Music" by Adnan Hussain, who will MC the evening on Feb. 22. The exhibition of 19 paintings is inspired by travels through Central and South Asia, featuring watercolor, gouache and ink pieces of music from Kyrgyzstan, Uyghurs from China, Pakistan, Uzbekistan and Mongolia. Enjoy art, live performances, screenings and connect to cultures across language and borders through the beauty of music.
