Brooklyn Raga Massive: Dan Weiss and Sameer Gupta – Tabla Duet

Presented by Caveat

Brooklyn Raga Massive (BRM) is a collective of forward thinking musicians rooted in and inspired by Indian classical music. Hailed as “Leaders of the Raga Renaissance” by the New Yorker, BRM creates original composed music by BRM member musicians and represented ensembles, and presents over 70 concerts annually at Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, MOMA, The Met, India Center Foundation, Brooklyn Arts Museum, Celebrate Brooklyn, BRIC, Jazz Gallery, Pioneer Works, Joe’s Pub, Shapeshifter, The Rubin Museum, Yerba Buena Gardens, Seattle Town Hall, and more. BRM features both traditional Indian classical performances as well as cross-cultural Raga inspired music. The culturally inclusive nature of BRM has made it into an incubator of new music collaborations with sounds indigenous to Brooklyn.

 

Sameer Gupta and Dan Weiss are unique in that both are known for simultaneously representing the traditions of American jazz on drums, and Indian classical music on tabla. This show represents a dialogue between two improvisers who share a common respect for modern jazz and classical tabla.
