ABOUT:

Arun Luthra is one of the premier saxophonists and composers on New York’s jazz scene.  He’s an American jazz musician of Indian heritage who explores fusing the modern post-bop sound with elements of Indian classical music, and draws from a wide variety of modern and classic musical influences to create a vibrant new sound and style. 

Joining Luthra’s ensemble is Selvaganesh, the son of T.H. “Vikku” Vinayakram – the legendary Indian percussionist best-known for his ghatam work in the pioneering acoustic fusion group Shakti with guitarist John McLaughlin. Together, they’ll perform music from Luthra’s Konnakol Jazz Project – a selection of works that highlights Carnatic and Hindustani music rhythms, and the art form of konnakol.
