   2:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Sitar Soundscapes  
   

Our Sunday Concerts at San Lorenzo Library continue with Sitar Soundscapes featuring Haji Basim.

 

Haji Basim, an award-winning, passionate and charismatic artist, announces his brand of music that expresses a unique approach and blend of Folk, Devotional, and World music. Basim is an accomplished internationally touring multi-Instrumentalist, who has mastered Guitar, Banjo, Ukulele, Sitar, etc. He is also a singer-songwriter, who has created a new diverse and spiritually upbeat genre called Urban Folk. His refreshing and innovative blend of folk falls somewhere in between the intimacy of artists such as Trevor Hall or Josè Gonzales and the sensuality and spiritual groove of performers such as Xavier Rudd or Nahko & Medicine For The People, just to mention a few.

 

For more information about Haji, visit his website at http://www.hajibasim.com/
