Hosts Andrew McLean’s “India Soul into NOLA”

This October, New Orleans native Andrew McLean will present a four-part series highlighting the ways that the music of India has begun to impact and interact with the sounds and musicians of the Crescent City. McLean – who was nurtured by guitar great Hank Mackie and then by world music and jazz faculty at U. C. L. A.’s Department of Ethnomusicology and the Ali Akbar College of Music – pioneered the performance of Indian music in New Orleans, where he co-founded the Indo-New Orleans group Shringar (with Tim Green and Aashish Khan, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan’s eldest son). His collaborative work with other world-class New Orleans musicians has included Henry Butler, Michael Ray, Kidd Jordan, Tony Dagradi, James Singleton, Steve Masakowski, Mardi Gras Indian Chief Smiley Ricks, and George Porter, Jr.

Details for Andrew McLean’s four performances, which will take place from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM each Friday at the Mint Performing Arts Center (3rd floor of the building) are as below:

October 2nd: "Duos in Dialogue" will feature Andrew McLean on tabla and Calcutta-born Priyo Majumdar on sarode, along with Clarence Johnson on saxopohone and Jason Marsalis on vibraphone.
