4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Surf Lodge - Heritage Hall

Middle Eastern music meets avant-garde jazz

Featuring Gordon Grdina, oud; Mark Helias, bass; Hank Roberts, cello; and Hamin Honari, tomak, daf and frame drum

“Just check out the layers of dense rhythmic counterpoint in Idiolect to appreciate how groovy this group is. The amount of ebb and flow between the players and how they trade off lead roles while never sacrificing any of the sinuous beat is impressive. It’s hard to believe that this is a new unit because they play like they’ve been doing this together for ages. Grdina is on record stating that the communication among the original three was so instant and rewarding that it was a no-brainer to pursue the group. Honari was a pretty easy fit, as he is steeped in the tradition.”
