Original Jazz to Original World Fusion: Mark Stone Group

  • The Carr Center 311 East Grand River Avenue Detroit, MI, 48226 United States

Mark Stone brings together celebrated world percussion traditions of Africa and India with the lyricism of the violin to create a vibrant new global soundscape. Inspired by his extensive travels, performances, and studies in Africa and India.

The Mark Stone Trio performs new music drawing on Mark's wide-ranging compositional influences, stretching from American jazz to traditional African music and classical Indian music to European concert music. In the group Mark plays the powerful Ghanaian gyil, ancient mbira of Southern Africa, and the traditional Ugandan endongo.
