Friday July 8th: Sunken Cages, Jake and the Nowhere, Gravestone Glue, Bayfay at Sacred Root
Saturday July 9th: Ravish Momin – Electronic Music Production, Live Drumming and Beyond! at Southside Community Center
Sunken Cages is the moniker for Ravish Momin, an Indian-born drummer, electronic music producer and educator. For the past decade, Momin has been experimenting with enhancing his acoustic drum sounds with electronic ones, and has crafted a unique electro-acoustic approach. He triggers sounds and textures, layers live-loops and manipulates them ‘on the fly’, to blur the lines between composition and improvisation. While rooted in Indian folk and Black Music traditions, Sunken Cages is also influenced by the street sounds of South African G’com, Angolan Kuduro and Egyptian Mahraganat.
We are currently seeking allies to help us co-fund this community workshop, so that others can attend free of charge or on sliding scale. Allies can help either through ticket purchase or donation.
