2016-2018
Texas Touring Roster

Orchestra of New Spain

Orchestra of New Spain

The Orchestra of New Spain is a professional period instrument orchestra/chorus presenting in concert the neglected repertory of the Spanish and New World 17th and 18th centuries, dedicated to the exploration of the Hispanic heritage of which it is a part, and educating the public on the importance of the repertory and its broader cultural implications. From the research of ONS's artistic director to locate the works, through the entire editorial process, the Orchestra brings this music to audiences of all ages in imaginative and compelling concerts, lecture-demonstrations, and educational programs, most recently extending to staged operatic production. Works available for 2016-17 include Christmas/Epiphany repertory and small form baroque works for 8 vocalists and 7-8 instruments: early Spanish opera, zarzuela, tonadillas (secular cantatas) and liturgical works from Bolivia, Cuba, Mexico. Open to repertory requests.

Oliver Rajamani

Oliver Rajamani

Oliver Rajamani represents the multicultural life and sounds of modern-day Texas. Distinguished for redefining Roma (Gypsy) music by transporting it to its original roots in India, Rajamani is also the first to blend Indian and Romani music with Texas country and blues. His performances and recordings with international artists are as stylistically far flung as Willie Nelson, Gypsy Kings, Eric Johnson, Dotschy Reinhardt, Edie Brickell and L. Shankar. As a teacher of music and therapy, Rajamani has presented at leading hypnosis conferences in the United States, Germany, Nepal, and India. He has taught "nada yoga" to incarcerated youth and mentally and physically ill patients. Touring programs include Texas Gypsy Fire: from the magical sounds of India, to the passion of Romani (Gypsy) music, to Texas country and blues, Rajamani sings in English, Spanish, and languages from India, accompanying himself on exotic instruments backed by traditional lone-star musicians. In Moonlight Tanz, Rajamani performs with his western classical orchestra featuring dancers from the Indian, Middle Eastern, flamenco, and ballet traditions. Songs are sung in English as well as foreign tongues and performed on instruments such as the rebab, oud, and flamenco guitar.
