There has been a force of gravity between Indian classical music and jazz for many decades -- the push and pull of improvisation, the exciting rhythmic language.
Roger Hanschel, surely one of the most extravagant, multifaceted saxophone players and composers of contemporary jazz, communes with the sensual and brilliant sound of Deobrat Mishra’s sitar.
In turn, Hanschel’s rhythmic finesse finds its equivalent in the virtuosic tabla playing of Prashant Mishra. While steeped in tradition, Trio Benares brings freshness to both musical styles.
Join the trio for a Concert on 16.01.2016, 7.00 p.m.
