Town Hall, Forum
Drawing on influences from Indian music, jazz, and western classical traditions, Naya Baaz is a ground-breaking new collaboration featuring 2021 Guggenheim Fellow Rez Abbasi (guitar) and trail-blazing sitar virtuoso Josh Feinberg. Drawn from Urdu, Naya Baaz translates as “new bird,” which embodies the innovation and freedom present in the music of this ensemble. Jennifer Vincent (cello) and Satoshi Takeishi or Ernie Adams (drums) fill out the band’s sound creating a sonically rich tapestry which defies categories. The members of this group are as diverse as the music itself, which blends different perspectives, experiences and sounds to create something completely new, and utterly unique.
