Kash Killion is a San Francisco based sarangi player, cellist, bassist, vocalist, and composer, who began his professional music career at age ten. Kash is a visionary musician who stretches the boundaries of what one would expect from string instruments. He hears the cello as a bass, a violin, a guitar, a saxophone, and a piano, and he seeks to share that with his listeners. He strives to put the sarangi and other string instruments in unusual situations and play any style of music and make it sound authentic.
Kash has recorded and/or performed with Sun Ra Arkestra, Chocolate Armenteros, Richard Egues ,Cecil Taylor, B.B. King, Billy Higgins, Reggie Workman, Bobby Hutcherson, Pharoah Sanders, Larry Willis, Steve Berrios, Francisco Aquabella, Quincy Troupe and Roberto Borrell-Orchestra La Moderna Tradicion. Kash also has a deep interest in world music. He studied with the great Indian musician, Ali Akbar Khan, and recorded with his orchestra. He has also studied with the great masters Sultan Khan and Rhamish Mishra. Performing with Kash Killion will be Sly Randolph on drums and George Khouri on keyboards.
