In their BRM debut, Acoustic Mandala Project teams up with tabla player Ehren Hanson. Drawing from a variety of influences and many years of experience as friends and collaborators, this ensemble of BRM veterans brings a fresh approach to the collective. Expect raga-inspired ambient textures, live looping, and spirited flights of improvisation.

Josh Geisler - Bansuri, Didgeridoo, Jaw Harp, Electronics
David Ellenbogen - Guitar
Ehren Hanson - Tablas, Percussion

Acoustic Mandala Project began as a studio collaboration between Josh Geisler (bansuri flute, didgeridoo, jaw harp, electronics) and David Ellenbogen (guitar) in 2009. Their eponymous debut album explores lush raga-based harmonies tuned in just intonation, which creates a haunting resonance rarely heard in "Western" music. Since then, Josh went on to become the music director for Cirque du Soleil's "TOTEM". David founded the Ragas Live Festival and serves as an artistic director of Brooklyn Raga Massive. The Project has continued to grow, incorporating elements of sound meditation practices and live looping.
