Stars Align: Subhi + Tony Barba

Stars Align is a monthly concert series and podcast which brings together musicians for a one-off collaboration. You’ll hear everything from re-imagined, stripped-down versions each others songs to completely new and improvised pieces. We record it and then sprinkle in some interviews with the artists themselves for the Stars Align podcast.

This month’s collaborators are singer/songwriter/composer Subhi and Madison, WI-based saxophonist Tony Barba.

Subhi is working on her debut Hindi Jazz album in collaboration with a number of renowned musicians from the Chicago Jazz scene including Rajiv Halim (saxophone), Joaquin Garcia (piano), Ivan Taylor (double bass), and Gustavo Cortinas (drums). The music highlights her journey as an artist, the choices she’s made, and the struggles she encountered. Anchoring it all together is Subhi’s earthy and organic voice. Her musical exuberance is matched only by her vivacious personality.

Tony Barba has recorded/performed all around the world with the likes of Bon Iver, the Mountain Goats, Escort, the Violent Femmes, Josh Ritter and more. He ‘s alsos been a member of the globetrotting Youngblood Brass Band for over a decade.

The stars align tonight.
