Laraaji & DJ Kyle Long at IMA – Saturday May 3rd

Laraaji_posterIndianapolis Museum of Art’s Last Call is a FREE and all-ages after-hours program taking place on the last Saturday of featured exhibitions, inviting visitors to celebrate until midnight with special events and music curated by Kyle Long of Cultural Cannibals.

Multi-instrumentalist LARAAJI creates shimmering, musical tapestries using electronically enhanced zither and autoharp. LARAAJI was first brought to international audiences through his collaborations with Brian Eno. LARAAJI bean his career working as a stand-up comedian and actor – appearing in Robert Downey Sr.’s 1969 cult classic “Putney Swope.”

In the early seventies LARAAJI began to study Eastern mysticism and believed he’d found a new path for his life through music. He bought his first zither from a local pawn shop, converted it to an electronic instrument, and began playing music on the streets of New York City in the 1970s.

In 1979 LARAAJI was “discovered” by Brian Eno while playing in Washington Square Park. The result was his most widely-recognized release, “Ambient 3: Day of Radiance,” the third installment of Brian Eno’s Ambient series.

“Last Call: Robert Indiana” will be LARAAJI’s last U.S. performance before departing on a European tour with acclaimed psychedelic rock band Sun Araw.

Take advantage of your final opportunity to see The Essential Robert Indiana at Last Call on May 3rd. Visitors can explore the exhibition while listening to the beats of DJ Kyle Long, and raise a toast to the closing with a specialty cocktail. Additional activities will include expert-led tours, art-making stations and demonstrations by local artists. A cash bar and concessions will be available. *FREE* & *ALL-AGES*

Sudanese music group Otaak Band with DJ Kyle Long – Saturday 1/18 at Jiallo’s


Sudanese music group Otaak Band will bring an exciting East African dance party to Indianapolis on Saturday, January 18th. Cultural Cannibals’ DJ Kyle Long will be spinning African dance grooves throughout the night.

Admission $10 – African/Caribbean food and soft drinks will be available. All-ages.

Otaak Band is the collaboration of Miguel Merino and Ahmed Said Abuamna from Eastern Sudan, who met in 2009 in Cairo. Ahmed Said is from the Beja, who are the indigenous people of the region between the Nile and the Red Sea in Northern Sudan and Southern Egypt, and a master of the Beja’s traditional lyre, the masankop.

In April 2012, after three years of collaboration, they recorded their first album of lyre music, Bejawiya, all with words in the Beja language. The band played several concerts in Cairo in support of the album’s release and received a fantastic response from audiences all over the city.

Never before has the lyre been at the forefront of a contemporary ensemble and been used as a complete musical instrument. Otaak Band plays thousand-year-old traditional melodies, pop-rock songs, and everything in between. Otaak opens a direct link to the ancient past while creating a sound that’s completely contemporary.

Otaak Band is dedicated to preserving the Beja culture and language, while breaking new musical ground through its innovative use of the masankop, one of the world’s oldest instruments. In addition to concerts, the band conducts workshops and presentations on rhythm and dance, Beja society and culture, traditional arts and crafts, and building and playing the masankop.
