Kaash Music Collective in NYC

Just got this email... if you're in NYC, check it out, though I haven't heard it myself. Pretty cool - though I've cried out about the dearth of South Asian American musicians out there, there seems to be quite a jazz scene developing in NYC, what with Vijay Iyer, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Sachal Vasandani and beyond.


You are invited to come hear Kaash, a music collective that fuses Indian music with a myriad of grooves and sonic textures.

Date: Saturday, July 30

Time: 8-9pm

Location: Crash Mansion
199 Bowery (between Spring and Rivington)
New York City

Subways: 6 to Sprint Street and walk east to Bowery
J or M to Delancey and walk north on Bowery
F to 2nd Avenue and walk west to Bowery

Cover: $10

Samita Sinha vocals
Sunny Jain drumset and laptop
Jesse Neuman trumpet and effects
Nathan Peck electric bass


Kaash is a music collective conceptualized by vocalist Samita Sinha.
Presenting a new sound, Kaash seamlessly crosses musical genres by
fusing Indian music with a myriad of grooves and sonic textures. In
the short time since their inception, Kaash has quickly emerged as a
force in the vibrant South Asian avant-garde and beyond.

I went to school with Samita brag brag and she's worth seeing. I went to their last show.

LOL. Okay - will do. Is there a college cheer that I should holler for an encore ("do ya want more").

(2 can play at this game)

You can do a "I didn't go to the 5th reunion because I didn't feel like i would fit in" cheer :)

I'll tell her you say hi. :)

Don't know Frontalot. Is that Mixalot's brother? Or is it a cousin of Lancelot?
