On a cold, wet Monday night in Santa Fe, Arc Iris and Qais Essar & The Cosmonauts treated a small crowd at Meow Wolf to a memorable night of music. Getting things started, the Phoenix-based Qais Essar & The Cosmonauts masterfully provided a unique combination of traditional Afghan and Western music. Headlining the evening, Rhode Island trio Arc Iris brought out their proggier side with keyboardist Zach Tenorio Miller
and drummer Ray Belli totally letting loose their mindboggling chops as frontwoman Jocie Adams channeled Joni Mitchell at her most adventurous.
