The Folly Bowl

Jul 7, 2014

Folly Bowl AmphitheaterAn outdoor garden amphitheater on the grounds of a private home. Bring your own picnic, refreshments, cushions, and even a blanket and pillow if you’d like for an evening under the trees in an intimate setting, thanks to Susanna Dadd and James Griffith of Altadena.

It’s the Folly Bowl.

We’re almost halfway through their summer series, but five more performances remain, so if you haven’t enjoyed an evening at Susanna and James’, we’ll give you a moment to pull up your calendar.

On July 20th, sitarist and composer Paul Livingstone will be performing with his Arohi Ensemble, “arohi” being the Hindi word for “ascending music.”

In 2010, Livingstone was the resident musician at Throop Church and often people came to service just to hear him play. In addition to the traditional hymnbook, Livingstone blended Middle Eastern, African and Latin music, as well as reggae, blues, and jazz (Nomi Morris/LATimes). Livingstone describes his style as “ragajazz chamber music” that blends Indian ragas, jazz, counterpoint and rhythmic material from diverse world traditions.
