A Musical Adventure that Spans the World! Join us for a special afternoon with world percussionist/recording artist Ian Dogole and his rotating cast of world-class collaborators for a journey into a riveting and uplifting multicultural and cross-pollinating musical adventure. From music inspired by the Jazz masters to ragas from the Indian subcontinent to Moroccan traditional music to Andean-inspired sound healing and so much more – each afternoon you can revel in an ever-changing musical landscape. Great for Music Students of All Ages!
This series also provides a great educational opportunity for music students to learn about creative improvised music sourced from all over the world. Grab a glass of wine or non-alcoholic libation and a dessert item at the bar and wend your way into a magical musical vortex that you’ll not find anywhere else in Marin County … and beyond.

For pure musical adventure that crosses geographical borders and bridges the divide between “world” music and improvisational jazz, this assemblage is not to be missed. These three musical innovators will be performing together as a unit for the first time, however, they are not strangers to one another. For nearly 20 years, Sheldon Brown was an innovative force behind Ian Dogole’s bands, both as a performer and composer and has appeared on a number of Ian’s recordings. Kash Killion and Ian Dogole have been performing together for the last 5 years as part of Mariah Parker’s Indo Latin Jazz Ensemble and appear on her latest CD release. Come and enjoy what magic they cook up today!
Sheldon Brown performed internationally as a featured soloist with Cuban pianist Omar Sosa, and recorded on five of Sosaʼs albums. In addition to his own ensemble, the Sheldon Brown Group, he continues to perform with many groups in the San Francisco Bay Area, including Electric Squeezebox Orchestra, Clarinet Thing, Darren Johnston Quintet, Club Foot Orchestra and countless more.
