More Event Dates

(2) Remaining dates for this event

Are you musically curious? Musicians and those who are interested in listening are invited to Brentwood Arts Exchange’s monthly Curiosity Jam! We welcome singers and instrumentalists from any culture in the world. Our goal is to share music and encourage cross-cultural collaboration. World music band Kundalika is the house backing band, with sitar-guitar, acoustic guitar, upright bass, and djembe on hand. Please bring copies of sheet music if you have it (e.g. if you’re doing a jazz standard), as it helps a lot. Percussionists, please bring along something to play on (we do not have a drum kit). If we aren’t able to accompany you, you are welcome to play solo! This is a judgement-free zone.

In addition to “open mic” time, each monthly jam will also feature a special segment, the world music group jam. We’ll teach folks how to play the basic outline of an Indian classical music scale on their own instrument (or sing it vocally). Then we’ll lay down a groove and do a jam with all the musicians there playing together! No knowledge of Indian music required; we’ll have handouts in Western notation.
