Sangam: A Special Fundraising Concert

Sangam: A Special Fundraising Concert


Sitarist Paul Livingstone
& Cellist Peter Jacobson

Thursday, March 21, 2019 – 7 pm - 9 pm

Jikoji is happy to be presenting Sangam, a chamber music duo of sitarist Paul Livingstone and cellist Peter Jacobson. Sangam are touring California with a series of intimate concerts of innovative compositions and improvisations straddling the worlds of Indian classical music and European polyphony. Their unique counterpoint is imbibed with the free spirit of a jazz improvisation and incorporates touches of Latin and popular music styles.

Jikoji is presenting this concert to help raise funds to renovate or replace our water tank. The Jikoji water tank serves the water needs of Jikoji as well as providing fire service water not just Jikoji, but also the Jikoji neighborhood. Please join us for this special concert to help raise funds for this important project.

Paul & Pete have been recording and touring together for over 10 years performing new world music with Arohi Ensemble, Build an Ark and Quartetto Fantastico among many other projects in the creative Los Angeles music world. They have been featured on three Grammy Award winning records with Ozomatli, Quetzal & Rickey Kej. Join us for an upcoming concert for some unique musical meditations & dynamic poly-rhythmic counterpoint.

Sangam means “a confluence of rivers.“ It is a meeting place of disparate streams flowing into one.
