BRM & GO: Organic Orchestra

composed and Improvisationally Conducted by Adam Rudolph

A 21st Century Orchestra meets 13th Century Raga

the inspiration 

Brooklyn Raga Massive has been making waves for their role instigating what the New York Times, New Yorker, and Wall Street Journal have called a “Raga Renaissance.”  The Go: Organic Orchestra with Adam Rudolph has been pushing the boundaries of large ensemble creative music for over 20 years, collaborating with musicians such as Yusef Lateef, Bennie Maupin, Don Cherry, Sam Rivers, Pharaoh Sanders, and L. Shankar. 

This ambitious project brings together Brooklyn Raga Massive and Go: Organic Orchestra into a synergistic exploration of raga, India’s classical music and contemporary creative music.  Composer Adam Rudolph’s hypnotic polyrhythmic explorations propel a spontaneous conducted group of over 20 musicians including legends of the African-American creative music, such as Hamid Drake and Gnawa master musician Hassan Hakmoun.
