Max ZT on hammered dulcimer and Priya Darshini on classical Hindustani vocals
Hammered Dulcimer maestro Max ZT and the incredible singer Priya Darshini create a lush, enriching and mesmerizing musical journey. Their moving performance will incorporate Hindustani Classical Music, South Indian Carnatic Music, and some of their own unique compositions. Lauded as the "Jimi Hendrix of Hammered Dulcimer" by NPR, Max ZT is an innovator of the instrument. His fresh perspective has been the backbone to beautifully complex compositions, while his unorthodox playing style has been a pioneering force in revolutionizing dulcimer techniques. Based out of Mumbai, India, Priya Darshini has been praised by many: The Indian Express calls her music “soul stirring,” five-‐time Grammy winner Roy Wooten calls her “an inspiration,” and Tracy Silverman, calls her “one of the most influential artists from India.” Priya’s vast knowledge of music from all over the world has resulted in a fresh, imaginative and fascinating new sound. Together we will drop deep into breath and body as we put our intentions into motion.
