NEXUS is the group that started it all. Dubbed the “High priests of the percussion world” by the NY Times, they have a now legendary body of work to call their own, working with luminaries from Steve Gadd to Steve Reich, Toru Takemitsu to Morton Feldman. They will appear with Sepideh Raissadat, a classically trained Persian singer and instrumentalist; she gave the first solo performance in Iran by a woman after the 1979 revolution.
