Grand Tapestry

Rap has gone global but there are still few instances where rap and world music meet. Marrying hip-hop with centuries-old traditions of Hindustani (North Indian) classical music, Grand Tapestry bridges that gap.

Featuring Eligh, an independent hip-hop artist known for genre experimentation, Alam Khan on the 25-stringed fretless instrument called the Sarod, and Salar Nader on the Indian drum known as the Tabla, this dynamic trio from California create an epic tapestry of sound; presenting 16 songs of cinematic beauty.

This performance is presented by Asia Society Texas Center.  With 13 locations throughout the world, Asia Society is the leading educational organization promoting mutual understanding and strengthening partnerships among the peoples, leaders, and institutions of Asia and the West. Asia Society Texas Center executes the global mission with a local focus, enriching and engaging the vast diversity of Houston through innovative, relevant programs in arts and culture, business and policy, education, and community outreach.
