Following the concert there will be an Opening Reception for the art exhibition by One Art One Spirit opening that day.
Kevin Nathaniel and Tomchess walk the border between music medicine and mysticism. Weaving a musical tapestry of the beautiful sounds of Mbira (African thumb piano), Oud (near eastern lute), Ney (sufi flute), and Morsing (Indian jaw harp), they lead their audience on a deep listening journey from the relaxing, healing, meditative and introspective to the celebratory pulse of dance. It’s music to heal planet Earth and all who inhabit her. See you in the garden!
