Sameer Gupta: A Circle Has No Beginning

  • Red Poppy Art House 2698 Folsom Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

Tickets ($20-25)

This project infuses an element of deep appreciation for cultural diversity and respect for tradition as well as innovation into the musical landscape today. The ensemble’s diverse roots, spontaneity, and musical influences of soul, modern jazz, Native American melodies, and Indian classical traditions help bring together a relevant and powerful statement. This work represents the power of collaboration and mindfulness towards others.

Gupta continues to build his career by combining traditional and modern improvisational styles, drawing from his dual Indian and American heritage. He continues to compose and perform music from a true multi-cultural perspective that now bridges several continents.
