Mumbai Jazz

Thursday, April 14, 2011 - Saturday, April 30, 2011

As part of its special twentieth anniversary celebrations, the Asian Music Circuit is delighted to present MUMBAI JAZZ. This exceptional global jazz tour fusing Indian and western music visits four leading venues across the UK and Europe, April 2011.

Mumbai Jazz is a spectacular jazz/raga mix-up matching fusion legends Larry Coryell (guitar) and Ned McGowan (flute) with India's foremost bansuri player, Ronu Majumdar. Percussionist Rajesh Rajbhatt completes the line-up on the rarely heard pakhawaj, a two-headed drum offering a deeper, rootsier alternative to the tabla.

‘A sonic concoction of supreme speed, agility and musicality that brings forth equal influence from the busy streets of New York City as it does Mumbai, India.’ -All About Jazz

All four musicians are accomplished performers and composers in their own right: Coryell just about invented jazz-rock and Majumdar has worked with Ry Cooder and George Harrison. This brilliant collaboration has resulted in powerful new works exploring the melodic richness of raga and dynamic rhythmic interplay common to both Indian classical music and jazz. Join us for an evening guaranteed to sound like nothing you’ve heard before!

This event is in partnership with Alchemy at the Southbank Centre.
