How deep can you go?|
The ballroom of the Embassy Suites Hotel in San Rafael will be transformed into an intimate club-like setting with fabric, color, lighting, and video by VJ Luna.
CONCERT NO. 4 of the AMBIcon 2013 CONFERENCE
Two full-length solo performances:
HANS CHRISTIAN : deeply beautiful, resonant journeys for looped cello, saranghi & nyckelharpe
STELLAMARA : powerful ethnic fusion with Balkan and Middle Eastern roots, featuring the luminescent vocals of Sonja Drakulich, shimmering with emotional intensity
HANS CHRISTIAN is a supreme multi-instrumentalist, ranging widely and worldly. From his classical cello roots, through jazz fusion electric bass, and on to "the crossroads of Ibiza and Mumbai," Hans's music can propel you on an adventure, take you on a soaring melodic flight, or float you languidly down a river on a lazy summer day. His work as a performer, producer, and composer has been documented on countless recording projects since he arrived in Los Angeles from Germany in 1982. A talented recording artist and record producer, he worked in the 1980s with icons such as Robbie Robertson and Daniel Lanois. After moving to the Bay area he immersed himself in the ethnic and classical music of India and Europe. He's well-known as the cofounder of RASA, the beloved Bengali devotional duo featuring Hans on multiple instruments and singer Kim Waters.
