Indo-jazz group Natraj celebrates CD release
World-jazz ensemble Natraj celebrates release of its new CD, Song of the Swan. This performance features guest Indo-jazz guitar wizard, Prasanna. All ages welcome. Validated parking available.

In its new release, Song of the Swan, Natraj adeptly blends contemplative raga improvisation, high-energy African- and Indian-based grooves, complex odd meters and polyrhythms, and edgy contemporary jazz. Natraj brings unparalleled depth to this project, with its members’ formidable jazz chops informed by years of study and performance of Indian and West African musics, collaborations with many Indian and West African masters, and years of honing their fusion artistry together.

“A true fusion of jazz and world musics... A compelling blend of Indian, African, and Jazz musics… Excellent tunes... It all works quite beautifully.” - Cadence Magazine

“The future of jazz... The future of world music.” - Times of India

Special guest Prasanna is the top-most performer of South Indian classical music on electric guitar and is a force at the cutting edge of fusing jazz with Western and Indian classical musics. “A highly accomplished plectorist and true world-music visionary.” – Jazziz.
