Collaboration of four New York City-based jazz and Indian classical musicians come together to explore the repertoire of singer Christine Correa.
Kittery, Maine- On Sunday, November 4th at 4 p.m. Christine Correa’s Mishran Project will take the stage at The Dance Hall in Kittery. The Mishran Project is a collaboration of four New York City-based jazz and Indian classical musicians coming together to explore the repertoire of singer Christine Correa’s home country of India. Drawing from both Indian folk traditions and the modern popular Indian songbook, these four musicians explore the music through a jazz lens, using the songs as an vessel for their own improvisation and experimentation. This project is very personal for Christine, who grew up singing many of these songs at her school in Mumbai. Together with accordionist Ben Rosenblum, guitarist Kenny Wessel and tabla player Ethan Fox, Christine is able to reconnect with her musical and cultural roots, and combine this with her extensive knowledge and experience in straight-ahead and free jazz.

The resulting sound is a unique amalgamation of various musical influences, resulting in the name of the project, Mishran, which means mixture in Hindi.
