Program Description

Join musician Sistashree for an exciting musical performance of her new piece, MOKSHA, dedicated to Nina Simone. A fusion of American gospel and Indian devotional music with deep roots in soul, jazz, and blues, Sistashree describes her music as “raw – it is the essence of my ancestors, it is black and beautiful.”

Throughout her decades-long career, Sistashree has played with jazz masters including James Blood Ulmer, Charles Burnham, and Bernard Pretty Purdie. She has toured extensively across the United States and India. Her latest release is titled Lord Ram, and dedicated to Alice Coltrane.
