Calgary’s Jazz Collaborative JazzYYC is presenting a cozy weekend of jazz concerts live at the historic King Eddy this November.
Enthrallingly eclectic, the new collaborative Indo-Jazz fusion quartet Raagaverse hits the stage on Friday, November 11.
Raagaverse interweaves Hindustani classical traditions, modern jazz, and poetry. Featuring Shruti Ramani voice, Jodi Proznick bass, Noah Franche-Nolan piano/Nord, and Nicholas Bracewell drums, Raagaverse transports listeners to a parallel dimension of gloriously collapsed frontiers.
Shruti Ramani is an innovative and emerging artist in the Canadian Jazz scene. She hails from Mumbai, India where she secured a degree in Hindustani music under the mentorship of Dr. Ritu Johri from the Agra Gharana. She moved to Canada and acquired a Bachelor in Jazz Studies (Performance) with a specialization in voice from Capilano University. Her original music is an eclectic combination of the Indian and Jazz traditions. She composes and arranges music that fuses the two traditions to create dynamic pieces for both large and small ensembles. She leads a collaborative ensemble named Raagaverse with respected musicians Jodi Proznick, Noah Franche-Nolan and Nicholas Bracewell. Some of her noteworthy performances include those as a bandleader playing her original music at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival and the Nanaimo International Jazz Festival, and at the Mixtophonics Festival where she premiered a string quartet composition.
Sound production equipment for the King Eddy is provided by PK Sound.
