Multi-instrumentalists & composers Tomchess (Pittsburgh-based) and Ravi Padmanabha present an evening of globally inspired jazz in celebration of the release of their vinyl album “Permanence of the Uninterrupted Continuity.”

Joined by bassist Eli Namay, the trio is inspired by sounds of Near Eastern music, free-jazz, and world roots. They create sounds that cross genres and are rarely played in typical jazz clubs. Their goal is to share rich audience experiences that simultaneously capture the nuances of life in our 21st century global culture.

Featured Musicians

Tomchess: Oud, Ney, Morsing, Composer

Ravi Padmanabha: Tabla, Sarangi, Percussions

Eli Namay: Upright Bass
