Cellist Hans Christian Plays Benefit for Malaria Initiative

This extraordinary virtuoso cellist Hans Christian tours the world, playing music of his own composition featuring many stringed instruments including the nyckelharpa, sarangi, and sitara. He integrates music from a variety of cultures and traditions, with a strong East Indian flavor. By using an electronic looping device, he layers on different melodies and sounds for a very meditative effect – ethereal and transcendant.

The concert is free but donations will be asked for an anti-malaria initiative. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) seeks to make malaria history! Their initial focus is Uganda. In Uganda, thousands of children die each year from malaria – a preventable and curable disease. The entire population is at risk of malaria, but less than 50 percent are protected by preventable measures like insect-treated bed nets and mosquito spraying. Hospitalization and deaths from malaria have increased in recent years.

This concert would be a wonderful prelude to Mother’s Day for you and your meditatively-inclined friends! (For more info, call (612) 871-2967)
