Indian/Electronic Trio Plays Hudson on Saturday

In the wake of last year’s triumphant Hudson concert by Brooklyn Raga Massive, members of the cross-cultural musical collective are returning to the town for a set on Saturday with a new project for what looks to be another transportive performance, this one at Ör Gallery & Tavern.

The Unstruck Sound is a trio inspired by the Vedic concept of anahata nada, the primordial sound that emanates from the universe. Group members Eric Fraser (bansuri flute), Neel Murgai (sitar, vocals, loops, daf), and David Ellenbogen (guitar, electronics) explore just intonation drones, overtone singing, and North Indian raga influences to create new sonic spaces. “Expect maximum psychedelia as [the band] move through droning soundscapes, raga melodies and primal rhythms,” says Fraser.

As the Unstuck Sound is a brand-new outfit, videos haven’t appeared online yet. So here’s a 2010 interview with Poughkeepsie native Murgai:

The Unstuck Sound will perform at Ör Gallery & Tavern in Hudson, New York, on March 10 at 7pm. Admission is $8. For more information, call (518) 828-0798 or visit
