Opening Act: Jam Key Jam (tabla and sitar) 7:00-8:00 pm in the Ballroom

Did you know there are 33 million gods and goddesses in the Hindu tradition? They are revered by 1.08 billion believers, most of them in India. The tablas, or Indian drums, play distinct pitches and are harder to master than any other percussion instrument in the world. A percussionist with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra who owns almost 200 ethnic percussion instruments once told me he would have to set them all aside and spend years just to become a decent tabla player!
Tierro Band 8:00 – 9:00 pm and 10:15 – 11:45 pm
“Intensely tribal and honest with a perfect nod to electronic idioms that are pulsing through our festival culture these days … strikingly hypnotic.” ~Michael Travis of String Cheese Incident
The combination of talent, musicianship, and passion exchanged between Bridget Law (founding member of Elephant Revival) and Tierro Lee (Kan’Nal, Otis Taylor Band & producer of Arise Music Festival) makes for a powerful concert experience. The gypsy-funk-get down-vibes come alive with Charles Parker on bass (recently back from sitting in on tour with Thievery Corporation) and drummer Jonny Jyemo (founder of Jyemo Club).The world dance experience is elevated even higher with the addition classically trained master tabla musician Nabib Shrestha, and the world-class belly dance and performance artist Kymbreanne.Arriving on a floating carpet powered by a magical genie the sound of TIERRO BAND is an oasis for lovers of live exotic dance and world improvisation. The ethnic flavors of tabla & sitar spice up the danceable backbeat as guitars and violins intertwine layers of alluring melodies from distant lands.
Merry meet for Samhain!
