[CARNATIC JAZZ] In this multicultural, multimedia extravaganza, the Indian violin virtuoso Ganesh Rajagopalan, recently named artistic adviser by the Rasika organization that's presenting this concert, starts with classical South Indian ragas and other Carnatic compositions, accompanied by traditional clay pot percussion. Then he transcends tradition, inviting rising Egyptian-American pianist Osam Ezzeldin (who, like Rajagopalan, has played with Zakir Hussain) and masterful Cuban drummer (and 2011 MacArthur "genius" grantee) Dafnis Prieto to weave jazzy lines from a very different improvisatory tradition into the expanding musical fabric. To top it off, Portland choreographer Jayanthi Raman incorporates a new dance work.
