An evening concert with electro-acoustic Americana virtuosos RAQIA.
In an age of rising chaos and encroaching darkness,
RAQIA seeks to create sanctuary and connection with
the natural world through music. Weaving between structured compositions and open improvisation, this is music of and for the elements. Guitarist Tad Piecka, coming from a background of post-rock and black metal, here infuses his lightning fast finger-picking skills with a strain of folk and Americana,
enhanced by his focus on the 12-string acoustic. Violinist Gregory Allison combines his experiences with folk and chamber pop with his training and background in Carnatic music, bringing a fluid and emotional fire to the group’s sound. Jon Bernstein, primarily known for ambient and cinematic soundscapes and sound design in the audio drama space, here focuses almost entirely on piano, drawing from styles that
range from neoclassical to pop music. As a group, these three merge organically to create a new sound that acknowledges their diverse influences while establishing a space that is very much their own.
