Harlem Stage Artist Circle Member, MacArthur Fellow and award winning composer and pianist, Vijay Iyer and pioneering composer and trumpeter, Doris Duke Performing Artist Award winner, and Pulitzer finalist Wadada Leo Smith join forces once again to present an intimate live performance based around their highly acclaimed duo album A Cosmic Rhythm With Each Stroke. Celebrating the work of Indian artist Nasreen Mohamedi with a seven-part suite entitled “Suite for Nasreen” alongside opening and closing compositions by Iyer and Smith, A Cosmic Rhythm With Each Stroke “captures the improvisational magic of both artists and their expressive individuality” while offering adventurous explorations on “mortality, impermanence and divinity” that are both “cultivated and passionate.”
This intimate evening at Harlem Stage will be followed by another performance at National Sawdust on Tuesday, December 20.
