$15 | 8pm | BRM Weekly Raga Jam- 10pm Iconoclastic Oud player Brandon Terzic will bring his amalgamation of African/Hindistani/Arabic styles filtered through the downtown NYC improv aesthetic to BRM. NYC based Multi-Instrumentalist Brandon Terzic has played with everyone from music mastermind Henry Threadgill to Sudanese Diva Alsarah, covering a large musical terrain both as a sideman and as a leader. Born in Akron, Ohio in 1976, Terzic took to the guitar early, absorbing the blues repertoire before traveling internationally and settling in NYC, where he studied Jazz privately with some of NYC’s finest guitarists including David “Fuze” Fiuczynski, Mordy Ferber, and Lionel Loueke. After multiple trips to the Middle East and North Africa, his focus shifted towards the modalities and rhythms of Arabic Oud and the Malian Ngoni. His studies with the Griot musicians of Senegal and the Gnawa of Morocco inspired a very unique approach to all his instruments, giving him great flexibility in his approach on instruments that are firmly entrenched in tradition. **Special announcement for Musicians!** BRM cordially invites you to join us in the ongoing effort to cultivate a home for intercultural musical dialogue. We are happy to offer FREE ENTRY TO MUSICIANS AFTER 10 PM WHO COME WITH THEIR INSTRUMENTS AND ARE READY TO PLAY! Please come out and engage with one of NYC's most vibrant and diverse communities of improvising musicians hailing from all over the music world!
