His ability to blend his talents together with many forms of world music has brought him not only the appreciation of music lovers throughout the globe, but also to the eye of celebrities in the music field including a private performance for Paul McCartney.
Ram Dass Khalsa, 19, will be the youngest member of the band and is an extremely talented musician who is classically trained in clarinet and piano and also enjoys playing guitar, saxophone and bansuri. Ram Dass was the winner of the Rachel Reilly Young Artists Award in 2002 and was selected to debut Pulitzer Prizewinner Steven Stucky’s “Meditation and Dance for Bb Clarinet and Piano” in 2004. In 2006, Ram Dass played at the Ford Amphitheater in Hollywood with jazz greats Joseph Jarman and Roscoe Mitchell of the Art Ensemble of Chicago.
