Laurie Kali performs with a 22-string slide veena, an instrument similar to the Indian sitar and Hawaiian lap steel guitar. Laurie also plays the ancient 39-string Indian sarangi. She has classical training in Indian and South Asian Music. In addition, she teaches and plays Hawaiian slack key, folk music, and piano. Visit Laurie’s webpage and find her on Facebook & YouTube.
RhythmFullCircle is pleased to announce our affiliation with Laurie Kali. Deborah accompanies Laurie on various drums.
We would love to play for you…
art openings, weddings, parties, kirtans, yoga classes–use your imagination. The audio example here is a shortened version of Raga Durga, a long piece celebrating the “Wonder Woman” myth of India. The veena starts slowly and quietly and gradually speeds up, adding percussion. We can also enlist story-tellers and/or dancers.
