Lasqo+Jaroba @ Turquoise Yantra Grotto & Viracocha! (SF, 28 Sep 2011)

Some very special shows are coming up on Wed 28 Sep with instrument-inventor and multi-instrumentalist Jaroba (here shown in the wild with his kit: As anyone who saw Jaroba’s show at the Luggage Store earlier this year can attest, he’s a memorable and fresh performer.

We’ll focus on free improv, but also take some duet and solo forays into material like transmigrated shakuhachi, distressed ragas, post-bopp’d Sicilian folk tunes, etc.

[1] In the afternoon, we’ll play 2 short sets at 4pm & 5pm as part of my regular gig at Viracocha, 21st & Valencia St., San Francisco.

[2] In the evening we’ll be doing longer sets between 7:30-9:30 in a very special house concert at the Turquoise Yantra Grotto, where instrument-inventor David Samas will join us to open on the zen industrial carillon.

Turquoise Yantra Grotto is a unique space near Glen Park in San Francisco offering, in addition to a normal piano, a gamelan piano and zen industrial carillon — a cozy laboratory to explore the world chamber music of the future in an unexpected dialog between global roots traditions and modernist music.

On hand will be a shamanist healer, a hula leader, and a neo-tea practitioner (our hosts) to facilitate your listening experience.

Following this inaugural concert, I’m planning to curate and otherwise help my friends with an ongoing concert series at TYG, including among other offerings, Wayang Turquoise puppet opera accompanied by the gamelan piano.

A scene like nowhere else.

Due to limited seating, by advance reservation only.

To reserve, send me an email at, and I’ll confirm and send details.

Warmly hope to see you at these special shows!
