Suphala's record release party w/ special guests plus the Kirk Knuffke Trio @ (le) poisson rouge
Suphala is one of the most versatile young tabla artists making music today. Raised in the U.S. by Indian parents, Suphala began learning western classical music on the piano at age four, performing at age five, and as a teenager transferred her passion to one of the world’s most complex percussion instruments: the tabla. She combines an unparalleled technical command of her instrument with a playful sense of experimentation as she switches effortlessly between composing, producing and performing.
Originally from Colorado, trumpeter/cornetist Kirk Knuffke has been based in New York City since 2005. Kirk has proven himself to be a versatile, energetic and tenacious artist. A largely self-taught musician, Kirk has also studied improvisation with great jazz artists such as Ornette Coleman, Art Lande and Ron Miles. He leads several of his own groups, including the Kirk Knuffke Quartet and trio, which play at venues across New york City. As a leader or Co-leader Knuffke has 10 recordings for labels: Cleanfeed, SteepleChase, Not Two, Relative Pitch, and No Buisiness.
