Interactions - Indian classical/modern jazz

Launching the Kellaway series of concerts for 2019. Indian classical meets modern jazz and western classical music. A chance to hear a joyful fusion and counterpoint using the shared improvisational backgrounds of modern jazz and Indian classical music. A combination of joint performances of Baluji Shrivastav’s original compositions seen through the lens of jazz improvisation and a number of James Welland’s jazz/classical compositions seen from the opposite angle. The set will also include a special solo performance from Baluji and a song by Linda Shanson. 

Baluji Shrivastav OBE is one of the greatest instrumentalists India has produced, excelling in sitar, surbahar, dilruba, pakhavaj and tabla. The outstanding characteristic of Baluji’s musical career is his versatility. His ability to concentrate on sound as his primary mode of interaction with the world has enriched his musicality and his courageous attitude to life is reflected in his approach to music. Firmly established in the Hindustani classical tradition he delights in exploring music in all its forms. He has worked with Stevie Wonder, Massive Attack, Coldplay to name but a few.
