Fall Into Winter, a music festival

happylucky no.1 presented three evenings of contemporary and new music programming curated by Bogdan Benigar. 

Benigar brought together an eclectic group of musicians for performances at happylucky no.1: Zeena Parkins & Brian Chase (the Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Sofia Rei Trio, Igor Lumpert & Forma Viva, Jessica Pavone, Jamie Saft Project, and Reut Regev's R*time, and Causing a Tiger (Carla Kihlstedt, Mathias Bossi & Shahzad Ismaily). 

This stylistically diverse selection of artists represents elements of avant jazz, improvisation, funk, experimental and folk music, with sources of inspiration ranging from Heavy Metal to South Indian drumming, Haitian rhythm, dreams and Borges.
