By David Chen  /  Staff Reporter

Also joining the musicians this weekend is the Lebanon-born, Chicago-raised Jamal Mohamed, a teacher and percussionist based in Texas and a bandmate of Sriji’s — the two work together in a quartet called Brahma. Mohamed plays the doumbek, a goblet-shaped hand drum used in the Middle East and North Africa, and has a wide-ranging resume that includes performances with Sting and violinist Mark O’Connor.
