Brooklyn Raga Massive will launch its Pioneer Works residency with a special concert celebration, a retrospective of it’s popular and Africa/India Series. For over a year now, Brooklyn Raga Massive, NYC Radio LIve and Afro Roots Music Nights teamed up to bring African and Indian artists together for monthly concerts. For this special triple bill, we will be presenting the legendary “golden voice of Mali,” Awa Sangho, supported by the Brooklyn Raga Massive All-Stars, the fresh new electro-acoustic Kora/Tabla duo Orakel made up of Kane Mathis and Roshni Samlal and the original band in this new genre Afrika Meets India, led by Kevin Nathaniel on Mbira and Eric Fraser on Bansuri. Dancing shoes strongly recommended!
