On Saturday, February 16 at 8pm Blackdome Presents world music ensemble Datura Road at The Windham Local. Datura Road is an ensemble based in the Hudson Valley with music that sits at the crossroads where East meets West. Combining various musical styles and influences from Indian Classical and Middle Eastern, to West African and Jazz, the band is able to create a new type of world music. Above all they emphasize song-form and groove, while introducing new textures to the western ear. Their debut release, Datura Road, features nine Hudson Valley musicians, and instruments such as the oud, doumbek, bansuri, tabla and Irish tin-whistle, in addition to the more familiar guitar, mandolin, bass and drums. Music begins at 8pm.
Admission is Free
