Brooklyn Raga Massive

Yerba Buena Gardens Festival

Teaming up with Martha Redbone, the celebrated soul-steeped roots singer of Native American and African-American descent, BRM plunges into a charged cultural mashup combining Appalachian laments and blues hollers with classical Indian modes. Like BRM, Redbone is no stranger to audacious cultural combinations. Her latest album The Garden of Love-Songs of William Blake features her sumptuous voice singing Blake's immortal words set to country, Piedmont blues, gospel, bluegrass, soul and traditional Native American forms.

This is what SF/Arts curator Jesse Hamlin had to say about Brooklyn Raga Massive :

The intrepid Brooklyn collective Raga Massive, which played its version of Terry Riley’s iconic “In C” at YBG last summer, returns with a mash-up of blues shouts, Appalachian ballads and Indian modes, created in collaboration with soul singer Martha Redbone, who brings some Native American tones to the mix.
