THREE CONTINENTS MERGE TOGETHER FOR ONE NIGHT!

This world-class reunion delivers an incredible blend of original world music, Afrofunk, rock, jazz fusion, blues and electronica. The trio’s repertoire features infectious songs and instrumentals, propelled by the creative pulse of legendary drummer and Bronx native Will Calhoun (Living Color, Wayne Shorter, Most Def’, Mick Jagger…), The iconic voice and grooving bass lines of Cameroun’s Francis Mbappé (Manu Di Bango, , Fela Kuti, Ashanti Tokoto, Francois Louga, and Ernesto Djedje) and the creative and versatile palette of four time EMMY winning composer, and progressive world fusion guitarist Patrick de Caumette, from France.

This performance will be a Philadelphia premiere
DYAD RAJI MALIK - RADHA GOPINATH DAS
Raji Malik, guitar, has performed in several critically acclaimed rock, and world music ensembles. His guitar playing blends several styles, yet one can always detect his Indian roots in his sound. Raji also plays sarod, a 19-stringed North Indian classical instrument.
He is a member of the Indian/Middle Eastern fusion group, Jaffna.

Radha Gopinath’s extraordinary talent as an Indian percussionist has led him to collaborate with legendary tabla maestro Zakir Hussein, the Spoken Hand, and Lenny Seidman’s Tabla Choir. He continues to study table, mridangam and South Indian rhythms under the tutelage of renowned Maestro T.H. “Vikku” Vinayakram.
