Neil Welch & the Narmada Project
Presented by Earshot Jazz. Heavily influenced by Hindustani music and the spiritual music of John Coltrane, Albert Ayler, and Pharaoh Sanders, Narmada combines free improvisation, highly-arranged multi-meter composition, and traditional Hindustani musical forms. The band includes Neil Welch (saxophones), Chris Icasiano (drums), Luke Bergman (bass), Cam Peace (guitar), Brian Kinsella (piano), Tor Dietrichson (tabla/congas/percussion), and Pandit Debi Prasad Chatterjee (sitar).
