Flowing Music, Soaring Words - David Rhodes, Elaine Kreston, John Malkin & Eric Schneider
Cellist Elaine Kreston, pianist/keyboardist David Rhodes, percussionist/pianist John Malkin and mystical poetry reciter Eric Schneider are teaming up to create a transportive musical/spoken word experience at the Center For Spiritual Living in Santa Cruz.

The program will include some striking original compositions and arrangements, as well as improvisations on modal themes, on a variety of instruments. Among other instruments, John will play the halo drum to create some otherworldly sonic textures.

Cellist Elaine Kreston's has performed throughout the USA and Europe.  She is a founding member of the classical Maybeck Trio and the cello half of RumiCello, a duo which mingles the poetry of Rumi with the sounds of the cello.

She has performed as a soloist at the events of Krishna Das, Adyashanti, and Eckhart Tolle; at Carnegie's Recital Hall, as soloist on Broadway, with pop and rock stars, and has been featured in broadcasts on NPR and KPFA.

Last year he played a solo piano concert in Mallorca, Spain. John has created music for many choreographers and dancers including Frey Faust, Mel Wong, Tandy Beal, Stephanie Spencer and others

David Rhodes is a composer, arranger, and performer, who draws on his classical piano training, work with classical, jazz, fusion, rock and folk groups, study of world music traditions at SJSU, the bhakti of kirtan and the ecstasy of zhikr. India's spiritual traditions and music have been a deep and abiding source of inspiration for him.

David's recordings include the critically acclaimed "Traces of Eden," "Fluid Days," "Moonbirds" and "Elaine Kreston and David Rhodes Live." His acoustic palette includes piano, harmonium, synthesizer, zithers, voice and percussion. David is a composer for film, video and theater production, most recently for "The Freedom Stories of Lala", with playwright and actress Rivera Sun.

Eric Schneider joyously spouts the sacred poems of the mystics Rumi, Hafiz, and others, kindling the silent flame of awakeness in every heart.  In the past 20+ years, Eric has memorized over a hundred of these sacred poems that spring to life through his beautiful spirit, voice and warm presence.
