The ART will be joined by very special guest Marc Cary. Hailed by Down Beat as one of the most, “multi- dimensional keyboard players on the scene today,” whose music reveals those multi-dimensions in sensual living color, Marc Cary’s continual search for his musical identity has brought him to all corners of the earth, quenching his thirst to bring forth indigenous musics in all of their forms. A rare musician, Cary uses his understanding of the Indian raga system to create profound soundscapes which are accessible to all. Special guest: Trina Basu (ex TARANA).
