No Longer Showing.

Dawn of Midi is a Brooklyn-based acoustic ensemble made up of Aakaash Israni from India on double bass, Amino Belyamani from Morocco on piano and Qasim Naqvi from Pakistan on drums. With their critically acclaimed 2015 album  Dysnomia (Erased Tapes), the band abandoned improvisation in favor of highly precise composition, utilizing sophisticated rhythmic structures from North and West African folk traditions to weave a sonic tapestry of trance-inducing grooves— a singular sound Israni has deemed "both musically futuristic and sonically vintage." Organized by Lumi Tan.
