Hindugrass, Kaira Ba 

When: Fri., Oct. 19, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $10

Journalist Daniel Pearl took his fiddle with him whenever he reported overseas, until he was murdered by Pakistani extremists in 2002. Now the Daniel Pearl Foundation invites musicians the world over to celebrate his life and values through a network of concerts. Two of the Triangle's most introspective yet electrifying bands bring that celebration tonight: Diali Cissokho sings and slings his kora at the helm of Senegalese dance band Kaira Ba, while sarod virtuoso John Heitzenrater mixes Indian ragas with Appalachian reels in Hindugrass. Both bands can mesmerize and deliver ecstatic grooves—worthy offerings in the cause of Pearl's vision. —Sylvia Pfeiffenberger
