Prashant Michael John

Featuring multi instrumentalist Prashant Michael John with Andre Wickenheiser, trumpet.

The duo sets the scene for each story or theme with an introduction
based on a true experience. The music integrates melodies and rhythms from
various world cultures- mostly original with some variations on traditional
music. Some of the music is interspersed with spoken words. The stories and
themes are from Prashant’s imagination and his experiences in Canada.

The themes and stories set up the melodies and improvisations. Prashant uses acoustic and Electric Guitar, various stringed and percussion instruments and voice. Andre draws from his extensive musical ability to converse musically. Once the themes and melodies are set the duo improvises inviting newness and surprise to happen. We may request audience participation in creating some sounds/textures.

This is a proud Calgary arts community co-presentation with the High Performance Rodeo, Calgary’s International Festival of the Arts.
