The Warhol welcomes Haitian electronic music composer/percussionist/turntablist Val Jeanty, and percussionist/composer, Ravish Momin with their new project Turning Jewels into Water, on a tour supporting their debut full-length recording, A Map of Absences, on FPE Records. Their collaboration, rooted in improvisation shaped by ritual, evokes the esoteric realms of the creative subconscious. Drawing from the voodoo religion, Val recreates the ancient rhythm and pulse of Haiti through digital beats, while Momin, whose own musical background is rooted Indian, North African, and Middle-eastern traditions, has developed an original blend of electro-acoustic beats, drawing together the improvisational traditions in Jazz and Indian music. Together they explore the capabilities of new technologies to create a seamless blend of multiple electronic and acoustic instruments. Co-presented with PearlArts Studios.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
