    Baharat
    Baharat is a band from Brooklyn who play music influenced by Eastern cultures. Common among those cultures is the use of mircotones not found in Western music and sympathetic strings that resonate without being played directly. From the Middle East: oud, an Arabic lute ancestor to the guitar; frame drum and darbuka, a drum in the goblet family popular in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. From India: the sarangi, a short-necked bowed instrument known for resembling the human voice. Baharat seeks to expose the listener to music which provides a sound that is both familiar to the cultures they borrow from and unique unto itself. https://soundcloud.com/baharatband

    The Coyote Anderson Quartet is a new modern-jazz group that performs primarily the original compositions of guitarist Coyote Anderson, who won Honorable Mention in the 2014 ASCAP Young Jazz Composer’s Awards and is a regular member of the BMI Jazz Composer’s Workshop. One thing that makes this ensemble unique is that vocalist Corina Hernandez is used to replace the traditional role of a horn. This allows the ensemble to not only do 'instrumental' tunes but also newer works of Coyote’s that set the poetry of others into a jazz context. The quartet is rounded out by Carl Limbacher on bass and Max Maples on drums, who play together regularly in many NYC based ensembles, including the free jazz trio Ammocake.
