Jai Uttal

"Return to Shiva Station" Album Release Show

Thursday, October 30

8 pm $25, $29 day of show

Jai Uttal, a Grammy-nominated world music composer, recording artist, multi-instrumentalist, and ecstatic vocalist, combines influences from India with influences from American rock and jazz, creating a stimulating and exotic multi-cultural fusion that is truly world spirit music. In this very special full band "Return to Shiva Station" concert Jai re-envisions his groundbreaking recording "Shive Station". "Return to Shiva Station" is a whilly new album that brings us closer to the music itself with unadorned, intimate arrangements that illuminate directly the spiritual heart of each composition.

"Shiva Station," reflects Jai, "is about the power and mystery of Shive, the dancing Lord of Transformation and Protector of Devotees, and His primordial home, Tibet's legendary Mount Kailash." With "Return to Shiva Station," Jai reveals new dimensions of its inner essence - the seed of Bhakti that gave birth to them all.
