With a title that alludes to an inciting moment in the creative life of one of the biggest icons in music history, Miles Davis and the Blue Flame Incident celebrates the life and work of one of the most innovative jazz musicians of all time. An exploration of Davis' career, this unique performance combines video clips, voiceovers that brings to life sections of his autobiography, still images and, most importantly, incredible live music courtesy of the Metta Quintet. As the musicians perform a variety of songs that demonstrates the range and imagination of the trumpeter, bandleader and cultural provocateur that was Miles Davis, an inspirational story of the man himself is woven with the supporting media in this not-to-be-missed show.

Excellent seats and the performance was amazing. So many different instruments from both north and South India. The mix of western and japanese instruments made it so different but the fusion was excellent. would definitely recommend it to others and would go see it again.
Tarang, an ensemble created and directed by Abhijit Banerjee, focuses on Indian percussion, blending intricate and catchy rhythms with melodies derived from Indian classical music. The Tarang ensemble consists of some of the masters of percussion in the Indian musical genre. The instruments- the tabla, ghatam and the morsing- provide the entire spectrum of sound, from deep bass, mid-range to high frequencies, all accomplished through natural sound modulations. The melodies are interwoven with a dazzling array of rhythmic structures, createting a vibrant, pulsating yet soulful blend of music.
Since its premiere in 2002, Tarang has performed on invitation at several prestigious venues in India. The ensemble first toured the US in 2003 and received rave reviews from the San Francisco Chronicle and the LA Times. Their 15-city tour included performances at several venues across the US and an appearance on CNBC.
