Warren Senders' musical life integrates strains of melody and rhythm from India, Africa and America. Senders was fifteen when he discovered Ornette Coleman and Charles Mingus and decided to become a jazz bassist and composer. At eighteen, he fell in love with Hindustani music, a passion which led to years of study in India; he is now a professional performer of the ornate improvisational artsong known as "khyal." The director of the "world-music" ensemble Antigravity and a faculty member at New England Conservatory of Music, he is recognized internationally as an innovative scholar and educator. Warren is the director of the educational outreach program, which has offered youngsters the chance to create and perform their own compositions with visiting JCA performers.
