Gary Muszynski and Friends
Saturday June 20th at 3pm-Outside concert
World Music: Sounds and instruments from Africa, Brazil, and Peru blend with jazz improvisation for a unique musical hybrid.
Gary Muszynski is a percussionist, composer, educator and facilitator who views rhythm, music and sound as doorways to healing, self-expression and group transformation. Through One World Music, his approach to music as a metaphor for leadership, collaboration and community has found its way into organizations and conferences worldwide. In addition to his work with organizations, Gary offers workshops and classes for the general public under the title Presence, Power and Percussion: Discovering your Musical Mojo.
Gary has studied rhythm and percussion in Brazil, Cuba, Indonesia and the U.S. with various masters. He has taught at the Kennedy Center, the Omega Institute, the Kripalu Center, and Spirit Rock Meditation Center and performed with Bobby McFerrin, David Darling, and WeBeThree. Gary plays the surdo, pandeiro, berimbau, udu, mbira, ashiko, and bongo. In recent years, he has explored composing for and performing on the hang, a hybrid instrument from Switzerland that combines the sounds of the Indonesian gong, the Indian Guatam pot, and the Trinidadian steel pan.
"The music was beautiful, healing, mysterious, and full of wonder. The spirited and world-class playing was incredible!"
- Yoshi Akiba, Owner of Yoshi's Jazz Club
