Pran (Greg Powers & Stuart Dempster)
Pran celebrates the release of their new CD, Traveler's Todi. This unique brass duo performs the East Indian style of Dhrupad. Greg Powers is a pioneer in adapting Indian music to the trombone, and is the only trombonist in the world performing this ancient style of music. Stuart Dempster provides the centering drone on his big brass didjeridu. While the instruments are western, they remain true to the Dagarbhani School of Dhrupad.
