Turning Jewels into Water (Val Jeanty & Ravish Momin)
Seed Artists' duo series returns to 73 See Gallery in Montclair!

VAL JEANTY creates Afro-Electronica rooted in voodoo culture and her Haitian roots.

RAVISH MOMIN explores the music of India, North Africa and the Middle East by way of improvisational jazz.

As TURNING WATER INTO JEWELS, they use acoustic percussion and electronics to pose Seed Artists favorite question: What if?

Turning Jewels into Water::The Intersection of Ritual, Improvisation and Global Rhythms

This new project with composer/ percussionist/turntablist Val Jeanty arose from her participation in a jam session at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn, NY while Momin was artist-in-residence there in September of 2017.  Their collaboration, rooted in improvisation shaped by ritual, evokes the esoteric realms of the creative subconscious.  Drawing from the voodoo religion, Val recreates the ancient rhythm and pulse of Haiti through digital beats, while Momin, whose own musical background is rooted Indian, North African and Middle-eastern traditions, has developed an original blend of electro-acoustic beats, drawing together the improvisational traditions in Jazz and Indian music.  Together they explore the capabilities of new technologies to create a seamless blend of multiple electronic and acoustic instruments.

Concert followed by a discussion with the musicians.

Alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments served.

As always, kids are FREE.

Proceeds fund Seed Artists programming.
