Hey TR Nation in NYC, you busy on the 24th? The correct answer is, “No, TR. What do you have in mind?”
Good question. See, Dana Leong and Tektonik are playing at Joe’s Pub on the 24th, and they’re donating 10% of all ticket sales to TR. Philanthropy and cool music; ever heard of a cooler date night?
Details below, see you there!
WHO: Award-winning composer Dana Leong leads a quartet [Tektonik] of cello, tabla, sitar, and electronics for an entrancing concert of mind rejuvenating original music at New York’s famed Joe’s Pub, exploring the healing power of meditative sounds from different traditions joining forces in a union towards oneness with the earth. Musicians include: Leong (cello), Val-Inc (electronics), Neel Murgai (sitar), and Sameer Gupta (tabla).
WHAT: Hailing from Japan, China, Haiti, and India—all countries recently affected by earthquakes, also known as “tectonic disruptions”— the musicians in the quartet come together in a unique collaboration. The soulful vocalization of the cello, the hypnotic droning of the sitar, the imaginative weaving of electronic soundscapes, and the soothing rhythms of the tabla will connect and produce a unique atmosphere of contemplation, harmony and healing as the sun sets on the Manhattan skyline. Leong and Tektonik are donating a portion of ticket sales to support Team Rubicon.
WHEN: August 24th (SAT) 7:30pm
WHERE: Joe’s Pub 425 Lafayette St. New York, NY 10003
