Concert series # 6
focus of our latest work is on Asia. Amplifying on themes presented
in Whirld  i.e. India and koto
rock [re-released], the listener is offered contrasting
musical views from East and West in structure and genre, reflecting
cultural differences, yet paradoxically similar. Contrast inner-laced
[koto] to baroque [harpsichord]. Though stylistically
very different, yet alike in formality i.e. cultural views balanced
with an almost mathematical symmetry. Similarly are the tabla
and steel drums of Carribbe. Also included are single
tracks, which fuse east and west. Jamaica East brings
reggae to Japan, while Asian winds fuses the cultures
broadly in contemporary fashion. Interspersed are direct contrasts
. Note blossoms / Warsaw: Each sets a
culturally reflective ambience.
in other CDs, the opening track blossoms is the introduction
for this inn-house Concert. Journey with us from the cherry blossoms
of Japan to the by ways of Beijing [tappas Beijing] to the streets
of urban India [India] and in juxtaposition to Western counterparts.
Journey through cultural variations of classical, rock, jazz,
reggae and in the resulting WORLD FUSION.
