Pran, a world music duo, blends the trombone and didjeridu with the traditional north Indian musical style of Dhrupad. Greg Powers develops raga on trombone while world renowned Stuart Dempster provides the drone on his big beautiful brass didjeridu. Pran is the vital breath that enlivens us all and best describes their enchanting mystical sound. Two Americans fusing European and Australian Aboriginal instruments in the tradition of Asian Indian Dhrupad music. Sonorous, droning, raga-sounding pieces that unfold gracefully, as if they had all the time in the world.
