TEKTONIK [Dana Leong] at Joe's Pub
Saturday, August 24, 2013
425 Lafayette Street New York NY
Award-winning composer Dana Leong leads a quartet of cello, tabla, sitar and electronics for an entrancing concert, exploring the healing power of meditative sounds from different traditions joining forces in a union towards oneness with the earth.
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 to remind us of our shared destiny and of the need for our compassionate and careful stewardship of Mother Earth. 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 mix together to produce a unique atmosphere of comtemplation, harmony and healing.
