Overview

Featuring Utsav Lal, Linda Buckley, Sam Comerford, Ganavya, Nitin Mitta and Sahar Romani. 

With the Asian American Writers' Workshop

The acclaimed Steinway artist Utsav Lal returns to Irish Arts Center for a special presentation bringing together two living musical heritages—Indian classical and Irish traditional. Lal’s genre collisions and collaborations (here, with composer Linda Buckley, flute, whistle and sax player Sam Comerford, vocalist Ganavya, tabla player Nitin Mitta, and poet Sahar Romani) generate a riveting new sound, reflective of the complexities of identity—and connectivity of music—in a fluid world.

This concert weekend will also feature a special, adapted performance just for kids.


"High energy meeting of the East and West...finding areas of commonality and overlap where previously it seemed that none existed”—TERRY BLAIN
