Outside (In)dia

Amir ElSaffar

For centuries, both Raga and Maqam have been the traditional music forms of expression for people from the Middle East to India. The two improvisational forms evolved along their own lines yet share musical commonalities, both rich in resonance and devotion. In this new collaboration and inaugural event in the Outside (In)dia series, Amir ElSaffar and Brooklyn Raga Massive explore and uncover new intersections between these ancient, profound musical traditions. American trumpeter, santur player, vocalist, and composer Amir ElSaffar has distinguished himself with a mastery of diverse musical traditions including Iraqi maqam. A recipient of the 2013 Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, ElSaffar has been described as “uniquely poised to reconcile jazz and Arabic music without doing either harm,” (the Wire) and “one of the most promising figures in jazz today” (Chicago Tribune). The concert will be followed by social hour featuring DJ Shishi.

Outside (In)dia is a four-part, cutting edge concert series that pushes the boundaries and conceptions of Indian classical music. With commissions of new works bringing raga into play with musical traditions spanning Cuba to Iraq, the series positions Indian classical music as a space for inclusion, collaboration, and conversation in innovative and radical new ways.

Presented in collaboration with The India Center Foundation and Brooklyn Raga Massive

Atrium 360°

Kambui: Where Does the Time Go…

Where Does the Time Go… is a short film by artist Kambui Olujimi, which chronicles the research of Ames C. Vera, a scientist of sorts, who travels door to door across the multiverse conducting interviews about missing time. While some interviewed have lost days or years, others are searching for moments that have slipped away. The film will be scored live and will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker.

Silvio Solis

David Rubenstein Atrium, Frieda and Roy Furman Stage (Broadway bet. 62nd & 63rd St.)

The national instrument of Paraguay, the harp has been integral to the country’s music since the 16th-century and Silvio Solis is one of the foremost torchbearers of this tradition. Performing on one of the instruments he built himself at his Jackson Heights apartment, Solis fills the Atrium with sparkling renditions of the guarania, polca, canción, and galopa traditions of his homeland. Solis will be accompanied by Argentinean guitarist Dani Cortaza and the famed Paraguyan band, Grupo Americanta.

Charanga America + Opening set by DJ Bongohead

Formed in 1977 by bandleader/conguero George Maysonet and his wife Margie, the Bronx-based Charanga America was one of the premier charangas in New York City during the late '70s and early '80s. Though the dance style has fallen out of style over the years, Charanga America has remained fitfully active onstage in the decades that have followed.
