Though the sitar doesn’t often appear in contemporary American music, Maryland musician Ami Dang strives to break the barriers between New Delhi and Baltimore by pairing the instrument with modern electronic beats and drones to create a distinctive new sound that she calls “Bollywave.” Her sitar shines with the help a looping pedal, creating a canvas on which Dang paints a musical mandala of cyclical sounds, introducing reggae to raga and twang to twerk.

Wednesday 4/30. $5, 8:30pm. Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar, 414 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 293-9947.
