Ami Dang
Conservatory trained sitarist and vocalist Ami Dang combines Northern Indian classical and ranges through ambient, psych, and experimental dance-pop to convey the chaos and spirituality landscapes of her hybrid South Asian and Baltimore identity. Her entrancing new work emphasizes the beauty of more traditional composition.

With Both Shoulders Broken
Coming from bands in Cleveland, and performing as With Both Shoulders Broken since exactly that in 2011, he comes to upbeat guitar rock through a collage of atmospheric and drone elements, entirely improvising live with electric guitar, drum machine, loopers, etc.

Kristal McKinstry and the Springs
A one-mermaid-band primarily on slide-guyageum guitar with shamanic vocals through morphing atmospheric effects and instrumental feedback, incorporating layered multiple microtonal scale morphing and fractaling rhythms for live ad-hoc narrative vision-quest journeys – drawing this season from sets of multiple genres from underground jazz-psychedelia through samba, surf, Celtic, Islander, techno influences, and beyond, touring the timeless stratosphere with transcendent exuberance.
