Tongues in TreesSQTONGUES IN TREES 7:30PM
Drawing from North Indian classical and folk music, Tongues in Trees is vocalist Samita Sinha, drummer SunnyJain (Red Baraat), and guitarist Grey McMurray (itsnotyouitsme). The trio blurs the line between East and West, traditional and experimental, acoustic and electronic. Long time collaborators Sinha and Jain bring their distinctive musical voices as Indian-Americans alongside McMurray’s avant new music textures. File as: Sonic Youth meets Bjork meets Sufi trance

Comprised of 8 members, hailing mostly from Colombia, M.A.K.U. SoundSystem makes big music that begins in traditional Afro-Colombian rhythms and ends somewhere in the punk-jazz stratosphere, with hints of Colombian folklore, Psychedelic Rock and Caribbean grooves. Clarinet, trombone, sax, guitarra, and Latin percussion supplement an overdriven rock core, creating a sound familiar enough to be danceable but always surprising.

SECOND SUNDAYS is a monthly series of open studios, live music, and site-specific interventions presented by Pioneer Works the second Sunday of every month. The series showcases artists in residence along with musical performances and DJs, curated by Olivier Conan.
