1111 W 10th St, Cleveland, Ohio 44113    View Map

March 26, 2020 7 PM to 10 PM

The first female Indian American jazz composer to premier work at Carnegie Hall, Charu Suri has been playing the piano since the age of five and performing since the age of nine. She won an international piano competition at the age of 15. Her recently-released “Book of Ragas” is a completely original sound in jazz, using a jazz trio with a Sufi singer, which six-time Grammy award winner, Arturo O’Farrill, has described as “singular.” The “New American Songbook” that is a nod to the more classic sound in jazz was released in a double bill at Weill Recital Hall on Dec. 20th, 2019.
Her piece for chamber orchestra, The Shield of Achilles, was performed by the Princeton University Chamber Ensemble. As part of an atelier workshop with Toni Morrison at Princeton, two of her original pieces were performed by a chamber ensemble, along with cellist Yo Yo Ma and double bass player, Edgar Meyer.
The band consists of Charu Suri on the piano, J. Brunka on the double bass, Jay O’Brien on the drums and the vocal talents of Sufi singer Umer Piracha and Songbook vocalist Danielle Erin Rhodes. Formed in the spring of 2018, the ensemble has received praise from jazz critics and audience members for renditions of standards and original music.
Suri’s debut album, Lollipops for Breakfast, launched in November 2018 and won a Global Music Award. The band has performed in several cities including Miami and Denver, and is working on tours to India, Chicago, Portland (Maine) and Greenville, South Carolina in the coming months.
