Come out for an evening of music from the Mediterranean, Near East & Balkans with Radio Free Bassanda. This group's energetic and complex rhythms will challenge the ear and the feet. Their wide range of repertoire and instrumentation from Eastern and Western traditions provides the musicians with a broad timbral palette to weave their sound pictures.
Radio Free Bassanda was founded out of a shared interest in the various modal music from around the Mediterranean, the Middle & Near East, and the Balkans. Modal music emphasizes melody and rhythm over harmony, and relies heavily on a great deal of improvisation and spontaneous invention. This version of Radio Free Bassanda features core members Roger Landes, Chipper Thompson and Ben Wright with special guests Jordan Langehennig and Jack Boaz. We had many great collaborations with Roger when he lived here and ran ZoukFest. It'll be great to rekindle some of that ZoukFest energy with this show!
