Prism Coffeehouse presents Taarka, a husband-and-wife-led team formed in 2001 in Portland, Oregon, by David and Enion Pelta-Tiller. The band, whose name is derived from a term in Indian cooking used to describe the sound of spices roasting, blends Virginia-rooted bluegrass and jazz with classical elements to form an eclectic and energetic gypsy-jazz.

Sunday 1/10. $15-17, 7pm. C’Ville Coffee, 1301 Harris St. 817-2633.
