SUSIE IBARRA at the Stone (through Oct. 6, 8:30 p.m.). Ms. Ibarra, a drummer, percussionist and composer, makes subtly illustrative music as the leader of various ensembles. She’s been in residence this week at the Stone, showing off her many projects. Things culminate on Friday, when she presents Talking Gong, a piano-violin-percussion trio making music inspired by gong chimes, and on Saturday, when she performs with her DreamTime Ensemble, the group that recorded her remarkable 2017 album, “Perception.”

JAZZTOPAD FESTIVAL at various locations (through Oct. 6). Jazztopad is a renowned jazz festival in Poland, and since 2015, it has brought a satellite delegation to New York for a run in the United States. This year’s edition began on Wednesday, and peaks this weekend with shows at Soup & Sound — a D.I.Y. concert space in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn — on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon, and finally a pair of shows at the Jazz Gallery on Saturday night, with a group of star American musicians (Kris Davis, John Hebert and Francisco Mela) sharing the stage with two Polish combos (the Kuba Wiecek Quartet and Waclaw Zimpel and Piotr Orzechowski’s Pianohooligan duo).

RAGAS LIVE FESTIVAL at Pioneer Works (Oct. 6, 5 p.m.). Twenty-four consecutive hourlong sets make up this nonstop event running from Saturday evening through Sunday afternoon. Now in its seventh year, the festival has moved from its old home at the Rubin Museum to Pioneer Works, a Red Hook concert hall and multipurpose arts space. This year’s performers will include members of the Brooklyn Raga Massive, the pianist Vijay Iyer and the vocalist Ganavya.

MARC RIBOT at Le Poisson Rouge (Oct. 8, 8 p.m.). Mr. Ribot is a storied downtown guitarist whose interests run from the outside in: from experimental squall and electric-guitar burn to blues and folk and protest songs. His rampant energy has been kicked up a notch by Trump-era indignation, and on “Songs of Resistance, 1942-2018,” a new album featuring some all-star guests (Meshell Ndegeocello, Tom Waits and more), he’s funneled it all into something powerful. Mr. Ribot celebrates the album’s release at this show, performing with a quintet and some additional guests.

MELVIS SANTA AND CHRISTOPHER HOFFMAN at the Owl (Oct. 7, 8 p.m.). The vocalist and pianist Ms. Santa hails from Cuba, and she’s among the country’s greatest young musical ambassadors. Here she pairs her strong, carbonated alto with a trio of master Cuban percussionists, all playing sacred batá drums: Román Díaz, Rafael Monteagudo and Anier Alonso. Before Ms. Santa, the experimental chamber-jazz cellist Mr. Hoffman will perform a set of original compositions with Bryan Carrott on vibraphone, Rashaan Carter on bass and Craig Weinrib on drums.
