New York, NY, March 14, 2018– Flushing Town Hall 2017-2018 composer-in-residence Arun Luthra presents, with his band, Arun Luthra’s Konnakol Jazz Project, the world premiere of his suite “Monarchs of Queens” created during his Exploring the Metropolis composer’s residency. This free performance (RSVP requested) is on Saturday, April 28 at 6:00 PM at Flushing Town Hall, 137-35 Northern Blvd., Flushing, Queens, NYC. The music is inspired by Queens’s extraordinary yet little known jazz history. Queens has been the home to many of jazz’s most iconic artists, including Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Jimmy Heath, Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley.

Arun Luthra’s music blends jazz with Indian classical rhythms, which he performs vocally using the art form konnakol, a reflection of his South Asian heritage. This cultural fusion in Luthra’s music highlights and celebrates the diversity of Queens and of the musicians who call it home. Arun Luthra was born in Worcester, Massachusetts to an Indian father and a British mother. He began his formal music training in Belgium at age nine, studying European classical guitar. He eventually focused on the saxophone and began an active performing and writing career, subsequently adding konnakol to his musical repertoire.

Performing with Arun Luthra on saxophones and konnakol are James Francies on piano, Sam Minaie on bass, and Kenny Grohowski on drums.

This composition was created with the support of the E.t.M. Con Edison Composer Residencies, administered by Exploring the Metropolis. This concert is made possible in part by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council.


Show Time: Saturday, April 28 at 6:00 PM
Location: Flushing Town Hall – 137-35 Northern Blvd, Flushing, Queens, NYC (718) 463-7700

Ticket Price: Free Admission, RSVP requested – http://www.eventbrite.com/e/public-program-arun-luthras-konnakol-jazz-project-monarchs-of-queens-tickets-42169338627
