Brian Shankar Adler
Saturday - January, 22 @ 8:00pm
Brian Shankar Adler is a multidisciplinary drummer, percussionist, and composer. His work transcends the terrain between genre and geographic region, asking: how can we find connection through rhythm? Adler has been described as "a polyrhythmic force.. New York City gritty yet still somehow capable of evoking the delicacy of a summer breeze" by Brad Cohan of JazzTimes. His recent project, Fourth Dimension, won best music video at the Transcinema International Film Festival in Peru and at the 2020 Independent Music Awards. Adler has toured four continents, been recorded on more than 35 albums, and has been featured in Modern Drummer Magazine, DownBeat, and NPR's New Sounds.
