Pran is Greg Powers and Stuart Dempster presenting Dhrupad in the Dagarbhani style. Dhrupad is the most ancient style of Hindustani classical music that has survived until today in it’s original form. Greg Powers is a pioneer in adapting this music to the trombone, being the only trombonist on earth to do so. Since 1992, he has been a disciple of the Dagarbhani tradition of Dhrupad, having studied with masters here and in India. While the instruments are untraditional, the music remains true to tradition.
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.
