Concord Community Music School Faculty Concert
Common Ground: Weaving Nepali & American Musical Traditions

Join members of the Music School's jazz, folk, and South Asian classical music faculty, in a program of compositions and improvisations reflecting their musical traditions and their adventuresome spirit.

This Bach's Lunch concert recorded in May 2019 features Harimaya Adhikari, vocals & harmonium; Prem Sagar Khatiwada, tabla; Scott Kiefner, bass; Matt Langley, saxophone; and David Surette, guitar & mandolin.  Enjoy a Herbie Hancock jazz tune with Hari scat-singing a solo; an Irish jig with Prem on tabla; and an Indian raga with Scott, Matt, and David improvising in that style. In this 2021 version, the performers will also speak briefly about what they learned in this collaboration of improvising within each other's musical traditions. 

A true picture of the Music School’s tagline, “a home for musical friendships,” longtime CCMS folk music coordinator David Surette became intrigued with the idea of a musical partnership between folk, jazz, and Nepali faculty members. He began improvising with Hari and Prem at their home in 2018, a tradition that included delicious Asian dinners. This concert is an outgrowth of that musical bond.
