BAKU, the popular Mendonoman World-Fusion ensemble, a frequent Grand Finale closer at Art In The Redwoods, will return to the Arts Center’s Elaine Jacob Foyer for an intimate concert performance on Sunday, January 26, 2020 at 4 pm to perform a Global Harmony Winter concert.
The band will showcase its distinctive and captivating improvised sounds that combine contemplative, ambient structures and melodies with a strong yet relaxing rhythmic pulse. Their self-styled musical hybrid,”Jambient Soundscapes,” is a fusion of jazz and Afro beat, drawing upon Cuban, Latin, Middle Eastern and other world cultural influences and rhythms.
BAKU was selected as the name of the group to honor the capital of Azerbaijan, which marks the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe, and to pay homage to the region’s diverse and rich cultural and musical influences.
For the band, each and every performance is an opportunity and celebration of discovery as they joyfully and spontaneously take themselves and their audience on an unpredictable and unforgettable musical journey.
BAKU is comprised of the following musicians:
• Harrison Goldberg, saxophones and percussion
• Chris Doering, 7-string guitar and synthesizer
• Tim Mueller, 6-string guitar and guitar synthesizer
• David French, upright bass and percussion
• Nancy Feehan, cajon and percussion.
Tickets are $15 advance, and $5 more if purchased the day of.
