BRM Concert+Jam ft. Slowspin

Apr 4
7:30 PM | 7:00 PM Doors

Brooklyn Raga Massive presents Slowspin in an evening of syncretic evocations that speak to our collective desire for oneness; songs of love, loss and longing rooted in Indo-Persian poetic expressions map the fractured constellation of migrant memories. Slowspin’s quartet includes vocalist Zeerak Ahmed, guitarist Grey Mcmurray, drummer Marlon Patton and Grammy-nominated multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily. Slowspin's performance will be followed by the legendary BRM jam session. Musicians interested in participating in the jam gain free entry and can sign up here.

About Slowspin

US-based Pakistani artist Zeerak Ahmed, who performs under the stage name Slowspin, produces voice-based sculptures, sound installations and uniquely fragile sound collages. Slowspin has a distinct sound practice grounded in North Indian classical vocal traditions, dream-folk, ambient and experimental-electronic music. Poetry and melodies in her mother tongue(s)—Urdu, Farsi, Purbi and English—build new textural soundscapes. Her collaborative album, TALISMAN, opens a world of Slowspin's uncanny and heart-wrenching refrains, delivering a balm for the migrant's journey into the unknown: the abyss of love, loss and longing. Since the release of the TALISMAN, she has been performing with the album’s co-producer Grey Mcmurray (Tongues in Trees trio, Beth Orthon, Ali Sethi), Marlon Patton (Lonnie Holley, The Mace Hibbard Quintet) and Grammy nominated multi-instrumentalist, Shahzad Ismaily (Yoko Ono, Laurie Anderson, Love in Exile).
