Jazz at Lincoln Center Closes out the 2023-24 Concert Season with “Rhythms of India”

The JALC season concludes on June 7-8, when the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis presents Rhythms of India, and continues its proud tradition of international community building and cultural exchange.

In collaboration with master Indian artists – flautist Jay Gandhi, tabla artist Anubrata Chatterjee, ghatam artist Ghatam Umashankar, and vocalists Malini Awasthi and Roopa Mahadevan – the JLCO bonds the melodies and rhythms of raga-based music and different folk styles with the tradition of jazz – a union poised to captivate audiences of all ages.

Drawing inspiration from iconic Indian compositions like “Kesariya Balam,” echoing the voices of Rajput princesses welcoming home their beloveds, and classic raga “Miyan Malhar,” evoking thundering clouds and pouring rain, this Rose Theater performance invites listeners on a journey through colorful soundscapes and moving stories. From the lively Punjabi folk song “Kothe Te Aa Mahiya” to the soul-stirring Thumri “Ka Karu Sajni,” each piece reflects a unique aspect of Indian culture and history.

Witness this vibrant exchange of ideas and celebration of diversity!
