SANGAM, an East-West chamber music project of sitarist Paul Livingstone and cellist Peter Jacobson, are touring California, playing concerts from Los Angeles to Oakland, and they will play 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 15, in Nevada City.

These virtuoso musicians perform original compositions weaving raga meditations and polyrhythmic counterpoint with both structured and free improvisation. Paul and Pete have been recording and touring together for over 10 years performing world music with the Arohi Ensemble. They have been featured on three Grammy Award winning records with Ozomatli, Quetzal, and Rickey Kej.

Paul Livingstone, direct disciple of Pt. Ravi Shankar, is an award winning sitarist, composer, ensemble leader, and activist. From Bach cello suites to sublime Indian ragas and Latin grooves, Paul and Pete present an eclectic and coherent sound.

Inner Path is the perfect space for SANGAM’s unique concert. The Inner Path studio hosts spiritual teachers from a variety of backgrounds, and many uplifting musical events. A yoga and meditation center, Inner Path offers an exciting variety of services to the community, including yoga and meditation classes, a lending library, healing services, a wonderful boutique with statuary, books, and a wide array of healing and spiritual products.

SANGAM is a Hindi word meaning: a confluence of rivers — it is a meeting place of disparate streams in music flowing into one.

Join us for dynamic improvisations, counterpoint, and musical meditations
