Vijay Iyer & Wadada Leo Smith: A Cosmic Rhythm With Each Stroke

Pianist Vijay Iyer joins forces with trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith in an intimate live performance of their highly acclaimed duo album A Cosmic Rhythm With Each Stroke. With compositions from the duo, including a seven-part improvised suite inspired by the drawings and journals of the late Indian artist Nasreen Mohamedi, A Cosmic Rhythm With Each Stroke offers improvisational magic and adventurous explorations on impermanence, mortality and divinity.
