About the Performers:

Rakalam Bob Moses

Rakalam Bob Moses is a living legend and one of the world’s greatest drummers. He began his immersion in the world of jazz as a small child, living in the same building as Max Roach, Abbey Lincoln, Elvin Jones, and Art Blakey. He was ten when he started drumming, and within a few years was playing duets with Charles Mingus; by seventeen he was gigging with Rahsaan Roland Kirk and playing with Jim Pepper in the Free Spirits, widely acknowledged as the first jazz rock band.

Over the past several decades, Moses has given his brilliant rhythmic support to scores of luminaries in jazz and contemporary music, including Dave Liebman, Pharoah Sanders, Sam Rivers, Gary Burton, Pat Metheney, Jack DeJohnette, the Brecker Brothers, Jaco Pastorius, Jim Hall, Terumasa Hino, Abbey Lincoln, Tsziji Munoz and countless more. His first large ensemble recording, “Bittersuite in the Ozone,” was released in 1975, and received five stars from Downbeat Magazine. It is still regarded as a masterpiece, and has been re-released on Billy Martin's Amulet Records. In the 1980s, he did some of his most important large ensemble works, recording “When Elephants Dream of Music,” “Visit with the Great Spirit” and the monumental double LP, “The Story of Moses,” all on Gramavision Records.

Moses 1

In the late 80's, Moses formed Mozamba, applying his unique compositional style to funk and world music influences, creating a music that is great for listening and dancing. Mozamba’s members have included Stan Strickland, Tiger Okoshi, Bob Mintzer, Bob Gay, Darren Barret, Jacques Schwarz-Bart, Miles Evans, Bryan Carrot, Duke Levine, Dave Fiuczynski, Kai Eckhart, Matthew Garrison, Billy Martin, Ben Wittman, P.J.Adamson, Sa Davis, Phillip Hamilton, Alvin Roberts, and many others. These days, Mozamba features turntable wizard, Mr. Rourke, and often sitting in is Moses' talented son, rapper, Rafael.

A widely respected teacher, Bob Moses is a faculty member at New England Conservatory of Music. His book “Drum Wisdom” is a near-legendary compendium of insights and suggestions.

Moses 2

The reviewers say:

About Bittersuite in the Ozone:

"A record so human, so goddamn bloody real, that you fully expect it to climb out of the jacket alone and lay down on the turntable for a ride. It is music that breathes, grunts, cries, sings, and laughs-it makes categories arbitrary and insignificant. Though the players involved are known for their jazz affiliations, the music made here is universal."
— John Sinclair, The Detroit Sun

About "When Elephants Dream of Music":

"Bob Moses has now emerged as the possessor of one of the grander imaginations in America's true classical music. No orchestral composer of this scope, mellow wit, and freshly distinctive range of colors has come along since Gil Evans."
— Nat Hentoff, Modern Recording and Music

About "Time Stood Still

"Leave it to Moses, a multi-directional shamanistic groovilator, to put all the pieces together. On "Time Stood Still", another sprawling production of DeMille-ian scale, he seamlessly blends Monk, funk, tap, hip hop, bebop, big band, blues, Bahia, Tanzania, and the avant garde into one organic package while paying homage to the spirits of Gil Evans, Charles Mingus, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, and Jaco Pastorius."
— Bill Milkowski, Down Beat


The Agbekor Drum and Dance Society

The Agbekor Society is a group of friends who have been studying, teaching and performing the music and dance of the Ewe tribe of Ghana, West Africa for the past three decades. Under the direction of Tufts Professor Dr. David Locke, the members of ADDS present an energetic and tightly synchronized blend of drumming, singing and dancing. While pieces like the intricate “Adzogbo” and “Yeve” are multi-part suites of extraordinary richness and complexity, “Gahu” and “Kinka” are vibrant and kinetic dance music that gets listeners up and moving.

The Agbekor Drum and Dance Society


Akshay Navaladi

"Akshay has shown fantastic finger magic on the Tabla. By demonstrating his expert talent and exhibiting his own individual style, he won over the audience overwhelmingly."

"This Tabla thunder has truly made a mark for himself."

Eenadu, Andhra Pradesh, India

Born into a family of classical music lovers, Akshay commenced his music lessons at the age of 6 years. After a year of training on the keyboards, Akshay’s fascination for the Tabla drew him towards the instrument and he is currently a disciple of Ustaad Akram Khan of Delhi/Ajrara gharana.

Akshay was conferred the ‘Ugadhi Purashkar’ award for child prodigies by the Madras Telugu Academy at Chennai, in 2002 and he has competed and won several awards in and outside New Delhi, in inter-school as well as national level competitions such as the All India Competitions of Music and Dance organized each year by the Navya Nataka Academy at Hyderabad.He has performed on on Doordarshan, India’s national television network, and has performed with both Hindustani and Carnatic music artistes in India and abroad. Notable performances include percussion ensembles with Shri K.N. Padmanabhan, renowned Mridangam exponent, the renowned Bharatnatyam danseuse Srimati Komala Varadhan, and vocalist Ustaad Iqbal Ahmed Khan, the Khalifa of the Delhi Gharana. Akshay has also performed in a series of workshops on ‘Yoga through music’ with Dr. T.V. Sairam, at the Asian music festival held at Kyrgyzstan in 2002, and in France and Canada in youth exchange programs in 2003 and 2004. He is currently performing extensively in and around Boston, Massachusetts.

At "Drumming For The Planet" he will be accompanied by Sri Ravi Torvi on the Harmonium.


About and the number 350:

Co-founded by environmentalist and author Bill McKibben, is the hub of a worldwide network of over two hundred environmental organizations, all with a common target: persuading the world's countries to unite in an effort to reduce global levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide to 350 parts per million or less. Climatologist Dr. James Hansen says, "If humanity wishes to preserve a planet similar to that on which civilization developed and to which life on Earth is adapted, paleoclimate evidence and ongoing climate change suggest that CO2 will need to be reduced from its current 385 ppm to at most 350 ppm." (Dr. Hansen heads the NASA Institute for Space Studies in New York City, and is best known for his testimony on climate change to congressional committees in the 1980s that helped raise broad awareness of the global warming issue.) Activists involved in the 350 movement include Rajendra Pachauri (Chairman, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), Vandana Shiva (world-renowned environmental leader and thinker), Archbishop Desmond Tutu (1984 winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and a global activist on issues pertaining to democracy, freedom and human rights), Van Jones, Bianca Jagger, Dr. James Hansen, Barbara Kingsolver and many more.

This weekend only, during South End Open Studios, Sept. 25-26, from 11 am. to 6 pm., all of my color and black & white prints, including prints of my Grandfather's photos of China, will be 25% off! If you have been thinking about ordering one of my photos, now is the time. And if you can't make it in this weekend, just call or email me with your order, or to ask any questions. I'll be happy to send you jpegs to help you make your decision. You are also invited to First Friday Open Studios the following Friday, October 1st, from 5-9 pm.; both events at 450 Harrison Ave., Studio 227, Boston, MA.

Having completely re-done my studio, I now have much more display space with new lighting and many new framed prints; I hope you'll come and see them. And for the next 2 months, I am proud and excited to also host the photography of Bruce Rathbun, a unique artist and craftsman (and my customer; I drum scan Bruce's 8x20 and 11x14 negatives). Bruce is showing 25 new Platinum Palladium prints during both weekends; these prints must be seen to be believed, just ask anyone who saw them last month!

"Two Lanes Wide: Images From The Open Road."
"One image. One day. Seldom are second chances possible; many of the dilapidated barns, broken down cars and main street store fronts I shoot are by their very nature living on borrowed time. Using an old wooden 8"x20" view camera I set out each year and hit the small towns off the two lane roads across the country. Working with such a large camera is slow and methodical in nature. In the tradition reminiscent of the early days of photography, I print my images using the Platinum Palladium process, which dates back to 1804. With a long tonal range, the print takes on a three dimensional feel. Each contact print is hand-coated on Arches Platine paper; the prints are one of a kind and unique in nature. There is no other medium so rich and expressive as a Platinum Palladium print."
Bruce Rathbun:; (617) 640-9174 ;

Also this month, in addition to new prints from my personal collection, I will continue to feature newly restored photographs of early 20th century China from the archive of my Grandfather, William Leete. Finally, I will have new examples of client work, both photography and Fine-Art reproductions.

THY WILL BE DONE follows Male-to-Female Transsexual Sara Herwig in her path to ordination in the Presbyterian Church. Efforts have been made to block her ordination by the evangelical conservative groups who don't recognize her as female and question her fitness to be a Pastor..... but who also challenge her candidacy because she is in a same-sex relationship, with a woman. At issue is the organized Christian Church, with all its political and financial power, as one of the fiercest battlegrounds for LGBT rights and gender recognition.

Davis Square, Somerville
Harvard Square, Cambridge


(Somerville & Cambridge, MA) Born out of a need for street bands to celebrate their social activist side, the increasingly popular HONK! Festival is back for a 5th year with opportunities galore for participants and festival goers to enjoy themselves immensely.

Opportunities abound not only for festival invitees but for the spur of the moment merry maker, including a chance to play music with the October 10th impromptu “community band” made up of individual musicians, who are not affiliated with any of this year’s HONK! bands, but are interested in participating in the gigantic HONK!

The HONK! Festival is a good idea coming to fruition. A need had been identified, not only on the part of musicians — of a particular persuasion — who have a penchant for gathering to raise a awareness about issues that need attention. But also a need is there on the part of the audience — not necessarily of any persuasion — to bask in the glow of this unusual phenomenon.

[HONK! photo by Mark Dannenhauer
as part of the current photo exhibition up in Davis Square]

As often as bands congregate to HONK in protest, they also perform to celebrate the causes and institutions they support: multicultural festivals, peace conferences, social forums, artists’ collectives, community gardens, block parties, neighborhood fundraisers, relief benefits and homeless shelters. In every case, the HONKers’ ultimate goal is to have fun, to relish the art of making fun as a form of individual and collective transcendence, and to encourage others to see and do the same.

The HONK! Festival Committee would like to give special thanks to the following for their support of this year’s HONK! Festival: City of Somerville, the Somerville Arts Council, RESIST, Harvard Square Business Association, Davis Square businesses, and last but not least, the local Davis Square community, whose support in terms of in-kind donations of food and public services, housing for upwards of 300 musicians, and cash contributions, is vital to keeping the HONK! effort going.

Sean Molloy Explores Night in the City
in the Brookline Arts Center’s Fall
Photography Exhibition Looking at the Night

(Brookline -- September 7, 2010) Sean Molloy started exploring the beauty of the city after dark when his father was ill with Alzheimer’s disease. “Most of my free time was after he had gone to bed, so I went into the city with a camera and it evolved from there,” says Molloy.

“After a while, I realized that I didn’t know how to use my digital SLR camera, so I took a class at the New England School of Photography, where I really got the technical training I needed for night shots. In fact, one of my teachers was a former NASA engineer from the Apollo program.”

Sean’s nighttime photos are on view at the Brookline Arts Center in an exhibition entitled Looking at the Night. The show features black and white photos of the Boston area at night. The show is open Monday, September 13 through Friday, November 5, 2010 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Other examples of Sean Molloy’s photographs are on view at the Brookline Public Library Main branch, in Attractions: New Art Coming to the Brookline Arts Center, a group exhibition organized by the Brookline Arts Center and the Brookline Public Library. Molloy is an employee of Brookline Bank, and is also a regular volunteer at the Franklin Park Zoo.

The Brookline Arts Center is located at 86 Monmouth Street, at the corner of St. Mary’s Street. The center is easily reached by public transportation on the Green line or the #47 and CT#2 buses. Admission to the exhibition is free. For more information, visit www.brooklineartscenter .com or call 617-566-5715.

Heights of Observation | The Photographs of Vittorio Sella
Vittorio Sella
Vittorio Sella, Moraine Lake on the Baltoro Glacier above Urdukas, 1909

Panopticon Gallery is pleased to be exhibiting the work of Italian mountaineer and photographer Vittorio Sella from September 9 – November 8, 2010. This exhibition, curated by Tony Decaneas will showcase contemporary photographs printed from the artist's original glass-plate negatives.

Sella's photographs precede the majestic images created by Bradford Washburn and Ansel Adams. Washburn was once quoted as saying, "Sella was definitely my first inspiration in mountaineering photography. His photographs of the Mount Saint Elias Expedition of 1898 led by the Duke of Abruzzi were some of the earliest photographs that got my attention." Adams, who wrote the preface to Sella's monograph Summit, said, "Sella has brought to us not only the facts and forms of far-off splendors of the world, but the essence of experience which finds a spiritual response in the inner recesses of our mind and heart."

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 16, 2010, 5:30 – 7:30pm.
