April 10: Rupa and the April Fishes at Osher Marin Jewish Community Center

Each day, Rupa Marya clocks in as a doctor of internal medicine at UCSF. And each night, she clocks out as one of the most buzzed-about Bay Area songwriters in the last year thanks to the multicultural appeal of her band Rupa and the April Fishes. Marya, born in the Bay Area to Indian parents who moved her back to India, then to France, settled again in California as a grownup. Somewhere along the way, she also assimilated the styles of Latin music, Indian ragas, Gypsy jazz, German cabaret and big-band swing that make up the unique April Fishes sound. A favorite of NPR and the BBC, Rupa has graced the stage of many a big-name festival, from European soirees to South by Southwest to Outside Lands in her home base; the cosmopolitan excellence of her latest album, Este Mundo, should guarantee further travels for the globetrotting band. Whatever you do, don’t miss their rare North Bay show on Saturday, April 10, at the Osher Marin Jewish Community Center, 200 N. San Pedro Road, San Rafael. 8pm. $26. 415.444.8000.Gabe Meline
