Deepak Ram at the North City Bistro Wednesday
Wednesday night the North City Bistro will welcome a new act, with Deepak Ram, along with Marina Albero, Tor Deitrichson, Ravi Albright and Dennis Stawkowski. $10 cover.

South African bansuri flutist Deepak Ram is a captivating performer and composer, combining technical mastery with personal charm. 

He has performed in the U.S., South Africa, India, United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Austria, Germany, Lebanon, Turkey and Holland and had the honor of accompanying his teacher, maestro Hariprasad Chaurasia, in Geneva, London and Paris.

Deepak's knowledge of both Indian and western traditions is evident in his compositions which range from pieces for jazz groups, western flute quartets (flute, violin, viola and cello), choral works and ballets to orchestral pieces. Deepak earned a Masters degree in Music (MMus) from Rhodes University, South Africa, in 1996 for his thesis, “Exploring Syncretism Between Indian and Western Music Through Composition”.

Deepak's versatility is apparent in his numerous collaborations with musicians of various genres. These include performances with jazz pianists Darius Brubeck and Bheki Mseleku, Tunisian oud player and vocalist Dhafer Yousseff and the popular South African band Tananas. On January 1 2000, Deepak performed with South African musicians like Sibongile Khumalo and the Rwandan diva, Cecile, on Robben Island in South Africa's millennium concert hosted by presidents Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki.

Thursday, we look forward to a return show by Dan Duval's Good Vibes Quartet, who will play from 7:00-9:30pm for $8 Cover. Lyric Jazz Standards, Melodic Originals, a Touch of Swing, Lots of Latin and a Bit of Blues.

Friday, Adriana Giordano returns from some shows in California, for another show with EntreMundos Quarteto. They will be joined by an amazing Brazilian percussionist, Eduardo "Dudu" Fuentes. They will play from 8:00-10:30pm for $15 Cover, and tickets are available until Thursday evening at this link.
