Bob Grawi on his lyrical new instrument the Gravikord, together with Pip Klein on flute and David Dachinger on bassoon, are"The Gravikord Ensemble" an innovative union of wind, reed and strings. Pip plays a tropical bird-like flute, and David can make a bassoon sound like a funky slap bass and more! Their original, folk and jazzy pop instrumental music is intoxicatingly upbeat and joyful with a rhythm that refuses to be pinned down in any way. "Grawi's flowing, syncopated picking style is reminiscent of Kottke/Hedges finger style." (From a review in Dirty Linen Magazine) The Ensemble performs world wide and has appeared at numerous venues and private functions, including The Venice Italy Carnevale, New York's Rainbow Room, Pete Seeger's Clearwater Festival, and Washington's Kennedy Center. The Gravikord is available for bookings as a duo with flute; or as ensemble with bassoon and percussion.
