Hindugrass 

When: Fri., Dec. 9, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $8-10

From ragas to Irish reels, Hindugrass explores the deep technical and mystical connections between Appalachian and classical Indian music. Composer John Heitzenrater plays the 25-stringed sarod; he's accompanied by guitar, tabla percussion and a three-piece string section of cello, viola and violin, which makes its debut tonight and features Lost in the Trees' Jenavieve Varga. The sextet is gearing up to record an album of new material next month, so creative juices should be flowing. Special openers for this show: The Onyx Club Boys' Gabriel Pelli and Dave Smith, and individual sets by Colombian harp innovator Pavelid Castañeda and Lebanese oud maestro Naji Hilal. —Sylvia Pfeiffenberger
