    New York, NY, US | 7:00pm

    SoSaLa – a music collective formed in New York in 2011 – is fueled by improvisation, diverse instruments such as electric guitar, fula flute, piano, vibraphone, sabar, electric tar, kemancheh, daf, electric trumpet and electronics, blending melancholic melodies, with those of front-man and sax player Sohrab Saadat Ladjevardi‘s native Iran. The rhythm section blends Persian, African and African-American rhythms and instruments. Sohrab’s vocals give a dada-istic touch to social and political issues. The music is molded by his international background, as an Iranian raised in Germany who later moved to Japan, and now New York City. Altogether, they call the music "nu world trash." For this event Sohrab invited his colleagues Baba Donn Eaton (LAST POETS) on percussion, harmonica and vocals and Kaveh Haghtalab on kemancheh ( a Persian small fiddle with a long conical neck). SoSaLa is opening up for Kamran Hooshmand from Austin.

In celebration of this move and as a farewell, FlickerLab is sponsoring a one week multimedia art exhibition: Are We Already Gone? Artists on the Art of Leaving. Featuring many artists from around the world with their works, such as sculptures, paintings, music and short films. The curator of the show, Negin Sharifzadeh, invited SoSaLa to perform in the spirit of this exhibition’s title and theme and give some life to the art works at FlickerLab. SoSaLa consists of Sohrab Saadat Ladjevardi on tenor ans sopran sax plus vocals and Baba Don on djembe, congas and other percussion instruments. For Sohrab and Baba Don to play at this event is kind of a reunion.
