Event Details:

Jazz virtuoso George Brooks and Indian classical music visionary Mahesh Kale unite for a collaboration that transcends cultural and musical barriers. George Brooks has it all: the colossal tone, the intuitive creative leaps, the commanding technique. The go-to horn-master for blues giants like Etta James and Albert Collins, he helped create the electrifying genre of Indian/jazz fusion with world-class virtuosi like Zakir Hussain and John McLaughlin. Indian superstar vocalist Mahesh Kale is a phenomenon around the world, beloved for his enchanting, reverberant voice and his unique ability to interweave classical and popular music. Together, accompanied by a world-class rhythm section, their otherworldly sounds will be steeped in Indian ragas and rhythms, creating an intriguing blend of jazz energy and Indian traditions.
