35th Parallel

Described by Showcase Magazine as "One of New England's most innovative ensembles," 35th Parallel takes the listener on a sinuous journey around the globe. Multi-instrumentalists Mac Ritchey and Gabe Halberg weave a sonic spell; winding a musical trail through the Middle East, North India, North Africa, and the Mediterranean.

Their signature MediterrAsian sound blends Middle Eastern oud and Indian tabla with a variety of other non-Western instruments, creating a sonic experience with traditional roots and a contemporary aesthetic. With the subtle use of ambient soundscapes and electronic effects the musicians create a dynamic backdrop over which they play select pieces.

35th Parallel's larger group, the MediterrAsian Jazz Ensemble, is a rotating lineup of innovative musicians bridging the musical traditions of the Middle East, India, and Western jazz.

35th Parallel is available for a variety of engagements including concerts, lecture-demonstrations, and school programs.
