“To give birth to the ancient in a new time is creation.”
Go: Organic Chamber Orchestra is a 21st-century vision of an orchestra of the future. Artistic director Adam Rudolph’s prototypical approach to composing and improvisational conducting embraces musical forms and cosmologies from around the world.
For the first time, Brooklyn Raga Massive, known for “preserving the past while blurring genres in an inventive spirit” (New York Times), will collaborate with Go: Organic Chamber Orchestra, creating an ensemble of over 25 musicians who will explore new dimensions in and around India’s traditional raga and tabla traditions.
Adam Rudolph, “a pioneer in world music” (New York Times) and a “master percussionist” (Musician), has a creative, forward-thinking vision. He is inspired by his work with countless legends of music including Yusef Lateef, Pharoah Sanders, Philip Glass, L. Shankar, and Zakir Hussain. His collaboration with Brooklyn Raga Massive, known as “leaders of the Raga Renaissance” (New Yorker), promises to open new avenues of sonic exploration.
