Prana Trio

Prana is a Sanskrit word translating into breath, vital energy, or life force. Yet, its meaning goes beyond these descriptions as it refers to the primary energy of the universe. Prana Trio, or Quartet as of recently, was established to transfer this universal idea of breath into a format based around musical improvisation. Since 2003, the group has been dedicated to exploring original compositions and improvisations based on the texts of Rumi, Hafiz, Lao Tzu, Kukai, Shankarcarya, Kabir, Issa as well as others. They have toured throughout the United States and Germany and have had the honor of playing with Ran Blake, Frank Carlberg, Dave Fiuczynski, Ben Monder and Stomu Takeishi

What defines power? That's a tough question to answer in general, and an even harder one to figure out when it comes to the world of music. For in music, a whisper may carry greater weight than a roar, an honest gesture can outdo a demonstration of brute strength and technique, and a direct message to ...

I Prana Trio fanno il gioco delle tre carte. Dopo due precedenti album (Pranan, 2006, e After Dark, 2004) ci riprovano con un CD che tenta di spiegare ...

One of the great fallacies of modern education is that it chooses to ignore much of the past--especially when it comes to cultures alien to the one that is subscribed to. This cultural insularity has prevented the enjoyment of some centuries-old art that is particularly poignant in today's turbulent and finite times. Fortunately ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
