An enchanting evening of musical melange of Indian ragas and Jazz music, with visual splendor of Indian dance.

Vidwan Ganesh Rajagopalan explores new boundaries as he commissions jazz artists to accompany him with Indian ragas and jazz chords in a world music exposition.

The concert starts with a traditional composition played on the Violin accompanied by Indian percussion on the Ghatam or clay pot by brilliant artist S. V. Ramani from India. The concert then turns to involve two brilliant jazz performers, Osam Ezzeldin on Piano and Keyboard and MacArthur genius fellow Dafnis Preito on the drums, who play the compositions of Ganesh, led by the maestro himself playing the violin. The lead piece ‘Maya’: Illusion creates magical music on the violin with ragas interwoven with jazz renditions on keyboard and drums. The featured guest dance choreographer-performer Portland’s Dr. Jayanthi Raman, has been commissioned to present a new piece on Goddess Shakti adding visual dimension to the concert.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
