Brooklyn-based trio Alaara (pronounced ahlah-ahrah) includes Grey McMurray on guitar, Sonya Belaya on piano, and Nicole Patrick on drums. The trio creates long form improvisations that prioritize patience, effortlessly traversing the spaces of jazz, experimental minimalism, and ambient music.

Pakistani-American composer Qasim Naqvi might be best known as drummer in lauded trio Dawn of Midi. When he’s not on tour he creates original music for film, dance, theatre and international chamber ensembles. His most recent works delve deep into the timbres of analogue synthesizers and orchestral configurations.
