Table Seating: $18 advance, $20 day of show

Standing Room: $15 advance, $17 day of show

Falu & Karyshma is an internationally recognized band known for its ability to weave together the intensity of rock, the improvisation of jazz, and the intricacies of India’s classical music. These seemingly disparate worlds, when combined, create collisions of sounds and sights rarely experienced by audiences before. The band, in its various formats, has performed 500 concerts in the US and around the world. The artists have been featured in the New York Times, Rolling Stone, and Billboard magazine among others. What brings the band members together is their decades of deep musical training, intelligence, and a sense of shared destiny. They know they are meant to be on stage together.

Falu is a Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter who has collaborated with diverse artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Ricky Martin, Blues Traveler, Wyclef Jean, A.R. Rahman and others. Gaurav is a singer/songwriter with soulful vocals who plays keyboards and flute. Soumya is a singer/songwriter, violinist, guitarist and published composer. Sandeep is a singer/songwriter, tabla player and student of the legendary Ustad Zakir Hussain. Chris is one of the most sought-after lead guitarists in NYC and has played with Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Kanye, Q-Tip, Jay Z, and Stevie Wonder among others.

Cobalt Collective
Megha Desai, Jonathan Keiden, Dave Rosner, Keoni Boyer and Dekko Mills are Cobalt Collective. The premier rock cover band formed three years ago when five friends came together to rock for a cause. That night was such a hit that the side project was forever transformed into the Cobalt Collective. The band members come from very diverse musical backgrounds, from Hindustani Classical to Rock to Funk making for their unique audio alchemy. Over the the past three years they have played venues including the Cutting Room, City Winery, and Chelsea Music Hall. From classic hits to contemporary music, they perform them all with a rock edge.

While Cha Wa honors the tradition with pulse-quickening and foot-stomping rhythms, it also adds a socially conscious element with songs that address injustice. Move to the band’s intoxicating groove and imagine yourself as part of a jubilant New Orleans second-line parade.
