Baraka Moon 

When: Fri., June 14, 8:30 p.m. 2019
Price: $15 - $18
Baraka is the Sufi word for blessing and it fits the quartet Baraka Moon’s fusion of spiritual styles. Vocalist Sukhawat Ali Khan fronts the band, creating a celestial drone with his harmonium. The songs he sings come from his family’s 600 years of vocal tradition, and he delivers them with vocals that rise from deep within his soul. Didjeridu virtuoso Stephen Kent, the performer who almost single-handedly brought this Aboriginal instrument to the ears of world-wide audiences, compliments Khan’s vocals with his inventive blend of rhythm and melody. Percussionist Peter Warren’s knowledge of global rhythms is the result of years of playing for African dance troupes all over the U.S. and in his native Canada, while guitarist Anastasi Mavrides was classically trained and has played with Makuru, a groove oriented, African dance band. His blend of jazzy chords and melodic flights of fancy brings another dimension to the band’s international sound.
