The unique and exotic International Novelty Gamelan on the final leg of their reunion tour will grace St Paul on this February evening, playing the music that has been known to make crows gather and music critics wax poetic.
Creating their own culture the members of ING have ancestors that span the globe and eventually all meet in Africa if you go far enough back according to current theories. For this show the band will perform music so abstract and primal that the names of the songs are pretty much arbitrary after thoughts.

THIS SAXOPHONE KILLS FASCISTS is a new iteration of the solo ouevre of Arrington de Dionyso (Old Time Relijun, Malaikat dan Singa) pulling up the roots of Spiritual Free Jazz to find new pathways to inspired political protest in our current age. Abstraction in music as resistance. This Saxophone Kills Fascists involves a rotating cast of top shelf collaborators.
Khyber Pass co-conspirators include.
Ryan N. Reber
Matt has been performing Hindustani vocal music both in India and North America since 2000. His other performance experience includes oud, Afro-Cuban drumming, simulogue, shape-note singing, experimental vocal performance, Thank-You-Play, and Javanese gamelan.
Guitar wizard Jon, aka John Saint-Pelvin, has been a long-standing favorite at the Khyber and we anticipate great things happening with this collaboration.
