Appalachian and Native American song is at the root of American music. Today, their song and struggle is particularly relevant and Martha Redbone is a clear and beautiful voice that represents these deep musical traditions. Her music flows equally from her own unique, award-winning blend of Native American elements with funk and her deep roots in Appalachian folk and Piedmont blues favored by the matriarchy that raised her on a rich sojourn from Clinch Mountain, Virginia, to Harlan County, Kentucky, and beyond to Brooklyn’s Dodge City-esque mean streets.


Tonight, Martha’s ensemble joins with Brooklyn Raga Massive's community of Indian music–inspired artists to highlight both the roots and contemporary interpretations of these traditions. 


This evening’s performance will feature a visual score by artist Nitin Mukul. Nitin Mukul (born in Lawrence, Massachusetts) has lived and worked in New Delhi, New York, D.C., and Los Angeles. He currently shows and curates with Aicon Gallery in New York. His interdisciplinary work bridges the mediums of painting, video, sound, photography, and printmaking.


With Martha Redbone, vocals; Aaron Whitby, keyboards and piano; Marvin Sewell, guitar; Charlie Burnham, violin; Tony Mason, drums; Fred Cash, bass; Sameer Gupta, tabla; Pawan Benjamin, bansuri; Neel Murgai, sitar

Special guests Soni Moreno, vocals; Michael Gam, sarod and percussion
