From the venue:

This project brings together three Georgia State Jazz Faculty members with three musicians well-versed in jazz and traditional music from the Indian Sub-Continent (Pakistan and India). The music from this area is rich in history and has many similarities with American Jazz in that improvisation plays such a vital role. Indo Jazz is a hybrid musical genre consisting of jazz, classical, and Indian influences. The structure and patterns would be based on Indian/ Asian music with the improvisation typical to jazz overlaid.

This event will bring Rez Abbasi, Nitin Mitta, and Kiran Ahluwalia to campus to provide workshops/ master classes for GSU students and interested community members, compose a new jazz suite for a sextet, conduct open rehearsals of the new composition, and perform in the Rialto as well as the Kopleff Recital Hall.
