Event Details

Bands performing: Atlas Maior & Sangeet Millennium


“Atlas Maior creates original music that combines elements of Progressive Jazz, Middle Eastern, Latin American, and Indian music traditions. Bandleaders Joshua Thomson (alto saxophone, flutes), Josh Peters (oud, lavta) create a unique sound that balances intimate moments of sincerity with powerful melodies and incendiary rhythmic passages. Bolstered by a top-notch rhythm section, they write original melodies exploring maqamat (Middle Eastern modal system) and harmonic progressions found in American jazz. The group composes with a wide variety of rhythms and incorporates traditional instruments including the Indian tablas, Middle Eastern dumbek, & Peruvian cajón.

The Sangeet Millennium Ensemble takes you on a sonic tour-de-force, as we journey together through Hindustani classical music from the maharajas’ and nawabs’ courts, joining ecstatic devotees wandering through Sufi and bhakti shrines, entertaining patrons in the salons of singing women, and eventually arriving at the screens of Bollywood. The soundscape presented includes creative interpretations of shared social and environmental concerns. The musicians include: Amie Maciszewski on sitar, Amit Kelkar on vocals and harmonium, Paarth Kuntawala on tabla, and Roshan Parajuli on bansuri (bamboo flute)”.
