Rudeyna’s adventurous band - both subtle and outrageous - delivers eclectic compositions; some found on their EP, “Flying Radio”, and upcoming 2018 releases. Performances offer kaleidoscope harmonies, rhythmic non-conventions, heart and courageous imagination, all with “buttery-voiced talent [that] knows no bounds”. The music delivers a clear message of gratitude, and dedication to “mastermind the bigger-ness in living.” (Big Mars, “Flying Radio”)
From Lebanon to New Haven, CT, the music of Rudeyna is inspired by international and local influences. Born in Beirut’s civil war - blanketed in headphones so to hear music instead of bombs - composer Rudy was protected and encouraged by music. In the US, she was allowed to follow this love, and since has had the honor to learn learn from & perform for mentors including Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter… etc., as a Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz finalist. In New Haven, CT, she teamed up with Bill Readey, King of great music production, and they made a band of their favorite musicians, including Kenny Owens (Drums),Fred DiLeone (Keys), and Lydia Iarocci (Bass).
When the live project is brought to life, it’s musical influences resonate a wild variety of sounds like Frank Zappa, Freddy Mercury, Bjork, Thelonious Monk, Nina Simone starring in Ziggy Stardust, or TM Thiagarajan composing for Charlie Chaplin.
