The Gift of the Wave

Wednesday, November 29th at 7:30 PM, doors open at 6:30

Tickets at Briar Patch or at the door $18/20

Join us at the Foundry for an intimate, café like setting for an evening of new compositions, Sufi poetry, and sound waves for grand piano, voice, large gong, didjeridu, and trombone. Special guest Joe Fajen-tabla and trombone- will join Ludi on several numbers. The two will perform in the Stone Hall. Hors D’ouvres from Java John’s, and beer and wine will be available.

“This is a quiet pocket of time between the holidays, we have this space to settle, to reflect a bit, and to pause, “ says Ludi.

The going in to the heart, the experience of loss and renewal, the returning light of the upcoming Winter solstice are some of the themes Ludi will thread together in the Stone Hall.  Expect to hear a variety of sounds and cultural sources, including poetry, a trombone piece from Bach, the jazz of Thelonious  Monk, North Indian Raga, didjeridu, Balinese gamelan and the healing sounds of the Earth-Sun gong.

“Joe Fajen, long time friend and collaborator, is a joy to work with. He brings his expertise, enthusiasm and humor to the stage and delights me as a multitalented performer on tabla, trombone, and percussion.”
