Gojogo – August 23, 2015

Asleep Under Waves

Sarah Jo Zaharako, violin; Eric Perney, bass; Roger Riedlbauer, guitars; Elias Reitz, percussion

Gojogo is an unusual quartet that combines the Western sounds of classical and jazz with the rhythmic traditions of India. Founded in 2003, they are dedicated to creating innovative music that is accessible and captivating. Gojogo performs original music composed collaboratively by the four performers, each drawing upon a different musical tradition and training. Compositions feature improvisation over structured forms, creating opportunities for spontaneity and a medium to present each unique instrument. They will perform pieces from the 2014 release Asleep Under Waves, a set of pieces inspired by the history of the Bay Area coastal military installations.
