Saturday, October 26, 2013, 8pm in Ann Arbor's Power Center, University Musical Society (UMS) presents The Manganiyar Seduction. Director Roysten Abel experimented boldly with the Manganiyars, desert musicians from Rajasthan, to create something startlingly new: The Manganiyar Seduction. Roysten’s concept created a dazzling union between the Manganiyars’ music and the visual seduction of Amsterdam’s Red Light District. Arranged in four horizontal rows, one on top of the other, 43 musicians are seated in 36 re-curtained cubicles. The show begins with a single cubicle lighting up to reveal the first performer, followed by another, and so on, creating a dramatic and musical roller coaster that transports listeners to an unknown world. “The effect is like that of a gospel Mass or a slow-building rave; a joyous, communal experience of the seductive power of music” (Irish Independent).
