Mike List is a globalized percussionist based out of Metro Detroit, having studied classical percussion as well as Indian tabla, Arabic percussion and other traditions. Dave Sharp (bass and synthesizer) is a musician, composer and bandleader who studied music and education at U-M and has performed in jazz and world music settings across the nation.

The two make up half of the Dave Sharp Worlds Quartet which explores music traditions from Turkey, Egypt, Ukraine, India, Bulgaria and Greece.

Together they will draw on classical Indian tabla compositions, Arabic rhythms, ambient electronic and jazz styles to blend these different worlds in a free concert at Michigan Medicine.
