Concert: Round Mountain + Souren Baronian’s Taksim

The Santa Fe based Round Mountain is comprised of multi-instrumentalist brothers Char and Robby Rothschild who blend "dusty American grit with a worldly amalgam of global influences." The brothers have travelled the globe, absorbing bits and pieces of musical cultures -Appalachian, Celtic, West African, Balkan and Middle-Eastern- which they weave into their original folk Americana songs. Taksim, which means "improvisation" in the Middle East, is also the name of the band created by multi-woodwind player and percussionist Souren Baronian. A hybrid of Baronian's ethnic Armenian heritage and the jazz idioms of his New York upbringing, Taksim fuses traditional instrumentation with Middle Eastern rhythms, a jazz vocabulary and bebop sensibilities. Taksim also features Paul Brown, bass; Mal Stein, drums; and Polly Tapia Ferber, dumbek.
