Mariah Parker's multi-faceted approach to music blends the driving rhythmic syncopations of Latin jazz, the uplifting spirit of Eastern music, and the soul of flamenco. New material will be performed and recorded at the concert for possible inclusion on Mariah's new live CD project. Seven tracks are already in the can, so this concert may be the last chance for music lovers to be a part of her new CD.

The concert features Mariah Parker (composer, piano, santur) and a stellar lineup of musicians including Paul McCandless (Grammy award-winning woodwind virtuoso with the groups Oregon and Paul Winter Consort), Matthew Montfort (pioneering guitarist with Ancient Future), Ian Dogole (global percussion), Brian Rice (Latin percussion), and Kash Killion (bass, cello).

"Parker and friends blend the rhythmic syncopations of Latin jazz music with the entrancing, asymmetrical meters of East Indian rhythms resulting in first-class world music. Intriguing melodies that draw musical inspiration from the tempos of Brazil, Cuba, India and Spain make for an uplifting serene yet passionate musical journey into an ideal world." - LATIN BEAT MAGAZINE

"Spicy tantalizing flamenco melodies cross pollinate with East Indian rhythms." - MAXIMUM INK MUSIC MAGAZINE

Mariah Parker is a composer and multi-instrumentalist whose main instruments are santur and piano. Her first instrument was the piano which she began playing at age 5. Later while working on her degree in music at UC Santa Cruz, where she collaborated with ethnomusicologist Fred Lieberman and Mickey Hart on the Planet Drum project, she fell in love with the sound of the santur when she heard it drifting across campus. She has performed in the US and Europe, and worked with many musicians of note including composer Pauline Oliveros and the late Zimbabwean composer Dumisani Maraire. She performs regularly with the innovative world music group Ancient Future.
