Drawing on the musical traditions of their homelands in India, Africa, Europe and America, four world-renowned musicians weave a global tapestry for the new millennium.
Led by saxophonist and composer George Brooks, who is widely acclaimed for successfully bridging the worlds of jazz and Indian classical music, the group includes West Coast jazz drummer/percussionist David Rokeach and global bass master Kai Eckhardt, who together create the rhythmic foundation that supports the group’s creative vision. Osam Ezzeldin, a leading jazz musician in North Africa, rounds out the quartet on the keyboard. Bristling with East meets West polytonality and rhythmic intrigue, ASPADA provides a rare opportunity to observe musicians from diverse musical backgrounds conversing in a new musical language.
