Free Will Offering

Saranaide will be joined by multi-instrumentalist and percussionist Ravi Padmanabha for a meditative journey that awakens your spirit. Bringing you rhythms from Latin America to India, this duo will create soundscapes that take you through the earth elements. Listeners are encouraged to do what feels best: sit and receive the vibrations, write, meditate, move your body- connect with your mind, body and breath in the present moment and see what unfolds.

Saranaide is an accomplished vocalist, songwriter and musician based in Buffalo, NY. With parents from Panama and Puerto Rico, Saranaide has dipped into her DNA to embrace and celebrate the pulses and sounds of Latin America and has exploded on the Buffalo Jazz Scene with a new vigor. Inspired by the legends of soul and jazz riding on the rhythms of the world, Saranaide’s unique sound is sweet honey dripping over a spicy stew.

Ravi Padmanabha is a percussionist, multi-instrumentalist, improviser, and composer. His initial interest was in a drum set, which later led to a variety of world instruments. From an early age, Ravi was exposed to Indian Classical music. At age 18, he began his formal Tabla studies with Pandit Ananda Gopal, and later with Pandit Samar Saha of Calcutta. Ravi spent many years performing in a wide variety of musical styles, including jazz, world, and experimental music.
