Event Notes


BC-based septet Naadaleela explores the common musical ground between the music of the “Eastern” world. Featuring acclaimed musicians with connections to Iran, South India, Taiwan, and North America, the sounds of Persian and Indian classical music meet with those of China, tempered with a tinge of North American jazz aesthetics. The group creates new musical works as well as arranges existing repertoire from their various cultural backgrounds, taking the listener on a fascinating musical journey.

The ensemble features Persian ney player Amir Eslami, Carnatic (South Asian-style) musicians Vidyasagar Vankayala (voice) and Curtis Andrews (mridangam), jazz guitarist Jared Burrows, and members of the adventurous Orchid Ensemble (Lan Tung-erhu, Dailin Hsieh-zheng, Jonathan Bernard-percussion).
