Pran is trombonist Greg Powers improvising in the Dagarbhani style of Hindustani Music. Powers is the only trombonist in the world performing this ancient style of music as Stuart Dempster holds down the drone on a big brass didjeridu. Powers is a pioneer in adapting Indian music to the trombone. He is a disciple of the Dagarbhani tradition and has studied with Jeff Lewis, Ustad Farid’uddin Dagar, Uday Bhawalkar, Baha’uddin Dagar and Wasif’uddin Dagar in Seattle and Mumbai. As a Fulbright Fellow to India he studied with Ustad Yunus Hussein Khan in New Delhi.
Each month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded organizations and artists present ten concerts of adventurous and experimental music in the gorgeous Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center (which sits on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish people): contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics. Watch a video clip about us on the Seattle Channel.
