Kayhan Kalhor & Ali Bahrami Fard - I Will Not Stand Alone

Posted By MiOd On Sunday, September 29, 2013 0 comments
Iranian kamanche virtuoso and innovative composer Kayhan Kalhor is known for his international collaborations with cellist Yo Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, the Persian-Indian ensemble m: Ghazal = 23569, and the Brooklyn Rider string quartet . I Will Not Stand Alone, is a spellbinding meditation on one of the most difficult stages in his life. Kalhor was part of the Green Movement civil uprising in Tehran, which was later squashed by the Iranian regime after disputed national elections. This was certainly an intense, emotional period, where darkness and violence seemed to be taking over. Through Kalhor's music and its immediate connection to the people, hope prevails.

Kalhor plays a custom-made instrument on this album, the shah kaman ("the king of bows"), built by Australian craftsman Peter Biffin. This new instrument is a variant of the bowed kamanche. With a fifth lower string and a series of sympathetic harmonic strings, its sound is similar to the Western viola or cello, and to the Indian bowed sarangi. Kalhor is joined by frequent member of his ensembles, Ali Bahrami Fard, on the rarely heard, low register, hammered bass santour. This instrument has sound close to that of the piano. Their musical rapport is telepathic as they seamlessly complete each other's elaborate articulations.

The extended, slow and patient "Between the Heavens and Me" opens the album, setting the atmosphere for this musical journey. The music reflects both Kalhor's rich musical heritage and his personal life as a musician; he left Iran after the Islamic Revolution in the late 1970s and returned a decade ago. His greatness as a musician and composer shines through the deep tranquility of this composition. The following "Where Are You?" is based loosely on a beautiful Kurdish melody, but the Kalhor and Fard version is freer. They transform this traditional theme into a timeless piece of music, their improvisations often sounding like a contemporary viola and piano duet.

"The Laziest Summer Afternoon" (based on an ancient Persian mode) and "Dancing Under the Walnut Tree" (which paints a childhood memory) serve as the interlude in this sonata-like cycle of compositions. The emotional climax of "Hear Me Cry" follows. Here, the music gains intensity and goes higher and higher, aiming—literally—for the heavens in the sky. Kalhor and Fard trade roles and shimmering, inspired solos. The conclusion, "Pluck a Star From the Sky," is an attempt to make sense and gain control after the heated climax. This is followed by a short, contemplative variation on the second composition, "Here I Am Alone Again." The powerful, steadfast title piece closes the album, symbolizing the popular struggle for freedom and the insistence and power of hope, even after a temporary defeat. This is magnificent music that portrays a timeless, universal, human story about mankind's need for hope and freedom.

Track Listing: Between The Heavens And Me; Where Are You?; The Laziest Summer Afternoon; Dancing Under The Walnut Tree; Hear Me Cry; Pluck A Star From The Sky; Here I Am Alone Again; I Will Not Stand Alone.

Simon Shaheen & Vishwa Mohan Bhatt - Saltanah

Posted By MiOd On Saturday, September 28, 2013 0 comments
A beautiful set of improvisations cross-labelled as Arabic Maqamat and Indian Ragas. Simon Shahheen, Vishnwa Mohan Bhatt, Ronu Majumdar, and Sangeeta Shankar play oud, violin, bansuri, and mohan vina. Very reflective, very beautiful.

Vishwa Mohan "V.M." Bhatt is one of India's most innovative musicians. The inventor of the Mohan Veena, a nineteen string modified archtop guitar with three melody strings, four drone strings and twelve sympathetic strings, Bhatt has created a sound that blends the western Hawaiian guitar with sitar, sarod and veena techniques. The first Indian musician to be awarded the "Musical Scientist award" in Banglore, India, Bhatt was praised by "Acoustic Guitar" magazine as "one of the greatest and mosty expressive slide players in the world". The "Edmonton Journal" referred to Bhatt as "an inspiration even to Western guitarists". A long time student of Ravi Shankar, Bhatt belongs to an elite group of musicians whose imeage traces back to Mughal emperor Akbar's court musician Tansen and his Hindu guru, Swarmi Haridas. In addition to six solo albums, Bhatt has recorded with Ry Cooder, Bela Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Taj Mahal and Arabian oudh player Simon Shaheen. Bhatt became the first Indian to collaborate with a Chinese musician when he toured with Erhu player Jei Bing Chen. Bhatt's collaboration with Ry Cooder, "A Meeting By The River" received a Grammy award in 1994. His collaboration with Bela Fleck and Jei Bing Chen, "Tabula Rosa", recorded in a Santa Barbara, California church in October 1994, was nominated for a Grammy. Tunes from "A Meeting By The River" and "Mumtaz Mahal", recorded with Taj Mahal, were featured on the soundtracks of films, "Two Days In The Valley" and the Oscar award-winning, "Dead Man Walking". Bhatt is a skilled composer. His composition, "Raga Ganga", was performed during celebration of India's fiftieth year of independance.

Ali Akbar Khan & Asha Bhosle - Legacy

Posted By MiOd On Thursday, September 26, 2013 0 comments
This CD is ABOUT Asha Bhosle. No Questions Asked. the music is only here to serve her gorgeous and divine voice. Asha Bhosle is my favorite singer in the world. Where do i start- this songstress has held her appeal over 5 decades and STILL continues to sizzle and reign as the Nightingale of India. On this album, she must have rendered her vocals at the age of 64- so her voice is not the perky, chickadee-like voice of her youth that she is WORLD-RENOWNED for. however, the singing is still lovely, but i wouldn't use this CD as the landmark by which to go in terms of judging her voice. Having recorded over 12,000 songs in her lifetime, she has a myriad of them in which her voice is young, bright, and sparkling- barely 12 years old til her 30's- in which her voice retained its freshness. Now, age has taken an edge on her voice, which has changed over time, but certainly not faded. I think my favorite song here was Tarana in Adana. i found this classical CD slightly monotonous- but this doesn't keep me from being her biggest fan in the world! For strictly indian-classical music buffs, this is surely a must have. For any Asha Bhosle diehard fans, the fact that it is a must have goes without say.

Amadou & Mariam - Dimanche a Bamako

Posted By MiOd On Wednesday, September 25, 2013 0 comments
Having issued a handful of excellent Afro-rock albums on small independent labels in the last few years, which have attracted attention within the world music community, Amadou and Miriam are poised to break out with Dimanche A Bamako, arguably the best album of a career that goes back 30 years. Produced by mischievous French/Spanish pop star Manu Chao (who even co-wrote and sings on a few tunes), the album fuses the couple's dynamic grooves with the producer's signature everything-and-the-kitchen sink backgrounds. This is truly a collaboration of like-minded individuals: Chao's own rabid multi-culti mix of styles enhances the blind couple's guitar-driven mix of blues-rock and African percussion, as well as Latin, dance and reggae grooves. Highlights include the impossibly catchy "Senegal Fast Food" and the percolating "Coulibaly," while the couple's political bent comes out on "Politic Amagni." Truly an album with a global perspective, there is something for everyone here, and rather than diluting the stew, it makes it all the more tasty. ­ --Tad Hendrickson

Amadou and Mariam are a middle-aged blind couple from Mali who have been singing and playing together since the 1970s, when they met at a school for the blind in Bamako. For years, they have enjoyed modest success, with Amadou playing guitar alongside Salif Keita in Les Ambassadeurs, and the couple's own R&B fusion albums notching up moderate sales in France as well as Africa. But they were hardly celebrities. Suddenly, all that has changed. Manu Chao heard them and was so impressed that he offered to produce, co-write and even perform on their latest album, Dimanche … Bamako. The album is a slice of Afro-pop heaven, stippled with Chao's stylistic fingerprints (street noises, wailing sirens, reggae-lite, sonic trickery).

Menuhin Meets Shankar

Posted By MiOd On Wednesday, September 25, 2013 0 comments
Ravi Shankar, the legendary sitarist and composer was India's most esteemed musical Ambassador and a singular phenomenon in the classical music worlds of East and West. As a performer, composer, teacher and writer, he did more for Indian music than any other musician. He was well known for his pioneering work in bringing Indian music to the West. This however, he did only after long years of dedicated study under his illustrious guru Baba Allaudin Khan and after making a name for himself in India.

Always ahead of his time, Ravi Shankar wrote three concertos for sitar and orchestra, the last of which was in 2008. He also authored violin-sitar compositions for Yehudi Menuhin and himself, music for flute virtuoso Jean Pierre Rampal, music for Hosan Yamamoto, master of the Shakuhachi and Musumi Miyashita - Koto virtuoso, and collaborated with Phillip Glass (Passages).

George Harrison produced and participated in two record albums, "Shankar Family & Friends" and "Festival of India" both composed by Ravi Shankar.

Ravi Shankar also composed for ballets and films in India, Canada, Europe and the United States. The latter of which includes the films "Charly," "Gandhi," and the "Apu Trilogy".

In the period of the awakening of the younger generation in the mid 60s, Ravi Shankar gave three memorable concerts - Monterey Pop Festival, Concert for Bangla Desh, and The Woodstock Festival.

Ravi Shankar was an honourary member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and is a member of the United Nations International Rostrum of composers. He received many awards and honours from his own country and from all over the world, including fourteen doctorates, the Bharat Ratna, the Padma Vibhushan, Desikottam,Padma Bhushan of 1967, the Music Council UNESCO award 1975, the Magsaysay Award from Manila, two Grammys, the Fukuoka grand Prize from Japan, the Polar Music Prize of 1998, the Crystal award from Davos, with the title 'Global Ambassador' to name some.

In 1986 Ravi Shankar was nominated as a member of the Rajya Sabha, India's upper house of Parliament.

Deeply moved by the plight of more than eight million refugees who came to India during the Bangla Desh Freedom struggle from Pakistan, Ravi Shankar wanted to help in any way he could. He planned to arrange a concert to collect money for the refugees. He approached his dear friend George to help him raise money for this cause. This humanitarian concern from Ravi Shankar sowed the seed of the concept for the Concert for Bangla Desh. With the help of George Harrison, this concert became the first magnus effort in fund raising, paving the way for many others to do charity concerts.

His recording "Tana Mana", released on the private Music label in 1987, brought Mr. Shankar's music into the "New age" with its unique method of combining traditional instruments with electronics.

The love and respect he commanded both in India and in the West is unique in the annals of the history of music. In 1989, this remarkable musician celebrated his 50th year of concertising, and the city of Birmingham Touring Opera Company commissioned him to do a Music Theatre (Ghanashyam - a broken branch) which created history on the British arts scene.

Mr. Shankar has several disciples, many of which are now very succesful concert artists and composers.

Perhaps no greater tribute can be paid to this genius than the words of his colleagues:

"Ravi Shankar has brought me a precious gift and through him I have added a new dimension to my experience of music. To me, his genius and his humanity can only be compared to that of Mozart's."

This album, according to Kavichandran Alexander's sleeve notes 'was planned in honor of the three main sources that have enriched Hindustani music: the folk tradition, the singer-saints of Islam and Hinduism, and the caste/guild of courtesans and dancing girls derived from the cults of the Goddess.' Excellent musicianship combined with an intriguing and unusual repertoire make this a fascinating project. Features Sukhvinder Singh Namdari on tabla.

Dastan Trio - Journey to Persia

Posted By MiOd On Tuesday, September 24, 2013 0 comments
Dastan Trio - Journey to Persia 2003 Hossein Behroozina: Barbat Hamid Motebassem: Tar, Setar Pejman Hadadi: Tombak


Founded in 1991, "the almighty Dastan is perhaps the most forward-thinking group of its kind, re-establishing a repertoire of Persian classical music while using its fundamentals of melodic, rhythmic and dynamic variation to develop new forms and combined sonorities. The ensemble's structured improvisations are performed by several of the very best of the contemporary Persian musicians including Hamid Motebassem on Tar and Setar, Hossein Behroozi-Nia on barbat, and Pejman Hadadi on tombak" (John Payne, LA Weekly) Saeed Farajpoury on Kamancheh and Behnam Samani on Daf. Dastan Ensemble toured Europe and Canada with the famed Persian singer, Sima Bina in the early part of 2002 and in the latter part of the year they toured in Europe with the acclaimed Persian singer, Parissa. The ensemble toured Europe with the well known Persian singer, Shahram Nazeri and virtuoso daf player, Bijan Kamkar in 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1998 and 2000. The ensemble's US tour with Shahram Nazeri and Bijan Kamkar was in 1991, 1992, 1995, 1997, 1999 and 2001. Dastan Ensemble toured Iran in 1993 and 1999 with Shahram Nazeri and Iraj Bastami. Dastan Ensemble is known for its collaboration with the finest musicians in the Persian musical tradition. These musicians have included Kayhan Kalhor, Mohammad Ali Kiani Nejad and Morteza Ayan as the first wave of performers with Dastan, and Ardeshir Kamkar, Pashang Kamkar, Reza Ghasemi and Siyamak Nemat Nasser as guest artists over the years. Le groupe DASTAN est l’un des groupes les plus célèbres de musique classique iranienne. Fondé en 1991, le groupe s’est rapidement fait un nom en tant qu’accompagnateur de chanteurs iraniens tels que Sharam NAZERI, Iraj BASTAMI, Sima BINA et PARISSA. Il joue soit en formation élargie ou, comme dans ce cas, en trio. Le travail du groupe est basé en grande partie sur l’improvisation en partant parfois d’œuvres anciennes pour en utiliser les thèmes. Ce qui caractérise surtout leur œuvre c’est la répétition et le renouvellement des modulations. Les trois musiciens qui composent le groupe figurent parmi les meilleurs de la musique iranienne : Hossein BEHROOZINIA a joué et travaillé avec la plupart des grands orchestres d’Iran. Il a composé beaucoup de mélodies pour le barbat cet instrument qu’il nous donne à apprécier ici et qui est un ancien luth persan (appelé en arabe oud). Hamid MOTEBASSEM joue ici de son instrument fétiche, le tar et le setar, instrument à quatre cordes, muni de touches et de vingt-cinq ou vingt-six frettes en boyau ajustables. Il exploite cet instrument dans toute sa sensualité, jusqu’à le faire «chanter». Quant à Pejman HADADI, il accompagne à merveille ces sonorités des roulements du tombak, cet instrument de percussion iranien en forme de calice recouvert d'une peau d’agneau ou de chèvre. Il utilise toute la richesse des sonorités de cet instrument avec une grande finesse dans les tom et bak, respectivement les frappes graves et sèches au centre ou sur le bord de l'instrument. Si, par le titre, le groupe avait l’intention de susciter l’envie d’un voyage en Perse, la musique certainement nous y invite. L’aventure musicale, en tout cas, est bien tentante. Marie-Paule Bonné

Emani Shankara Shastry - Inde Du Sud

Posted By MiOd On Monday, September 23, 2013 0 comments

Emani Sankara Sastry (1922 - 1987), was a renowned Veena player of Carnatic music.

Sankara Sastry was born on 23rd September 1922 at Draksharamam, Andhra Pradesh. He came from a family of celebrated classical musicians. His father Vainika Bhooshana Veena Acharya Emani Achuta Rama Sastri, a famed vainika and sastragna was a contemporary of Sangameshwara Sastri and Veena Venkata Romainiah Das of Andhra.

The prodigious training he had from young age under his unsparing guru-his father, reflected in abundance in his tuneful, melodious and technique perfect concerts. His graceful playing on the veena in strictly traditional style evoked a reverential listening. Emani gave concerts throughout the length and breadth of India. His participation in east-west music festival, Tansen festival, Vishnu Digambar festival, sur singars Haridas sangeet sammelan and other prestigious music conferences won him distinction in the field of music. He established a distinctive style of his own and to him goes the credit of bringing veena to its place of pride.

Quite at home with the Hindustani musical system also, Emani played duets with Pandit Ravi Shankar, Ustad Halim Zaffar khan and Pandit Gopal Krishan (on vichitra veena) evoking enthusiastic response from the north Indian listeners. In programme of national integration, he brought out the similarities of both systems of music. Emani was also a composer and director of distinction.

Kayhan Kalhor - Ghazal 2

Posted By MiOd On Monday, September 23, 2013 0 comments
Kayhan Kalhor (Persian: كيهان كلهر), born 1963, is an Iranian kamancheh player of Kurdish descent.
Kayhan Kalhor was born in Tehran, Iran. He began studying music at seven years of age. By age thirteen he was playing in the National Orchestra of Radio and Television of Iran. Continuing his music studies under various teachers, he studied in the Persian radif tradition and also travelled to study in the northern part of Khorasan province, where music traditions have Kurdish and Turkic influences as well as Persian. At a musical conservatory in Tehran around age 20 Kalhor worked under the directorship of Mohammad Reza Lotfi who is from Northern Khorasan. Kalhor also travelled in the northwestern (Kurdish) provinces of Iran. He later moved to Rome and Ottawa to study European classical music.
Kayhan Kalhor has a wide range of musical influences, he uses several musical instruments, and crosses cultural borders with his work, but at his center he is an intense player of the Persian violin. In his playing Kalhor often pins Persian classical music structures to the rich folk modes and melodies of the Kurdish tradition of Iran.

Kalhor has composed works for, and played alongside, the famous Iranian vocalists Mohammad Reza Shajarian (see Masters of Persian Music) and Shahram Nazeri. He has also composed and performed with the Indian sitar player Shujaat Husain Khan, the two forming a ghazal group and publishing several albums.

Ustad Bismillah Khan - Immortal Series Shehnai Samrat

Posted By MiOd On Sunday, September 22, 2013 0 comments
Ustad Bismillah Khan
Shehnai Samrat - Immortal Series Songs
Ustad Bismillah Khan (21st March 1916–21st August 2006) was a shehnai player from India. The term “Ustad” or “Pandit” in relation to Indian classical music means Master or Guru.

He was the third classical musician to be awarded the Bharat Ratna (in 2001), the highest civilian honour in India. He also had the distinction of being one of the few people to be awarded all the top four civilian awards.

Ustad Bismillah Khan was born on 21st March 1916 at Bhirung Raut Ki Gali, in Dumraon, the second son of Paigambar Khan and Mitthan. He was named as Qamaruddin to rhyme with Shamsuddin, their first son. His grandfather, Rasool Baksh Khan uttered “Bismillah” after looking at the newborn, thus he was named Bismillah Khan.

His ancestors were court musicians in the princely states of Bhojpur, now in Bihar state. His father was a shehnai player in the court of Maharaja Keshav Prasad Singh of Dumraon Estate, now in Bihar. He received his training under his uncle, the late Ali Baksh “Vilayatu”, a shehnai player attached to Varanasi’s Vishwanath Temple.

Ustad Bismillah Khan was perhaps single handedly responsible for making the shehnai a famous classical instrument. He brought the shehnai to the center stage of Indian music with his concert in the Calcutta All India Music Conference in 1937. He was credited with having almost monopoly over the instrument as he and the shehnai are almost synomyms.

Hariprasad Chaurasia - Four Dhuns

Posted By MiOd On Saturday, September 21, 2013 0 comments
From Indian master flutist Hariprasad Chaurasia comes this album featuring, as one would expect, four dhuns. In essence, the dhun is an instrumental version of thumri: light, semi-classical music. The first to be performed is "Pahadi," perhaps the most popular dhun in existence. It is somewhat relaxed, with a soft tone taken throughout. Second is "Shivranjani," a close relative of "Bhupal." This one is somewhat more complex, with a sharper tone taken as well. Chaurasia also uses a couple of notes that don't belong in the scale on this one, adding a bit of variety. "Rag Pilu" presents itself as the third composition, and a tiny Bengali folk piece stands as the fourth, inviting Chaurasia to improvise thoroughly over a short four-note motif. Throughout, Chaurasia's tone is sweet, carefully alternating between passages of chipper work with more contemplative passages. In general, his ability to use the bansuri for a full raga is perhaps the most outstanding feature of his repertoire, but nonetheless the shorter dhun provides a worthwhile vehicle for his music. He is held less to the stricter rules of raga by the dhun format, and takes full advantage of the looser musical rules. It's an exciting album for fans of the underappreciated bansuri, as it provides yet another look at the legacy of the only major master of the bamboo flute in Indian classical music.

Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia's bansuri playing is always worth the cost of a recording. I love his emotive technique, and can only speak praise of him.
Four Dhuns is an interesting album for the western listener, because indian art music typically expounds upon a select set of notes throughout a rendition of a raag. Dhuns, however, are a lighter (in spirit) type of classical tune, and they generally are played usuing more melodic variety than the raag form. This allows a musician to leave conventional note choices behind and give an strong effect to the mood of the song by seeming to change chordal harmony, in relation to the drone instrument.

If you have ever found indian art music a little dry for your tastes, this is a good album for you.

Omar Faruk Tekbilek - Dance For Peace

Posted By MiOd On Saturday, September 21, 2013 0 comments
Honored as a peacemaker and virtuoso, Omar Faruk Tekbilek’s work transcends political boundaries while maintaining traditional sensibilities.

Omar Faruk was a musical prodigy. He was born in Adana, Turkey to a musical family who nurtured his talents. At the age of eight, he began his musical career by developing proficiency on the kaval, a small diatonic flute.

His musical interests were nurtured by his older brother and by a sympathetic uncle who owned a music store and who provided lessons. Omar Faruk recalls, “ had a music store, and he also had another job during the day. So he told me to come after school, open the store, and in exchange he gave me lessons.” While working in the store, Omar Faruk learned the intricate rhythms of Turkish music, how to read scales, and other rudiments. He was trained on and eventually mastered several instruments: ney (bamboo flute), zurna (double-reed oboe like instrument with buzzing tone), the baglama (long-necked lute), the oud (the classic lute), as well as percussion. By the age of twelve he began performing professionally at local hot spots.

In 1967, upon turning sixteen, he moved to Istanbul where he and his brother spent the following decade as session musicians. Omar Faruk stayed true to his folkloric roots, but during this period of frenetic session work in the metropolitan music scene, he explored Arabesque, turkish, and Western styles and the compositional potential of the recording studio.

Sevara Nazarkhan - Sen

Posted By MiOd On Thursday, September 19, 2013 0 comments
The issue of folkloric 'purity' is irrelevant here, because Sevara Nazarkhan is a self-confessed pop artist in her homeland of Uzbekistan. Nevertheless, with her reverb-drenched voice declaiming traditional Uzbek poetry and the sound of doutar and tanbur lutes gently tingling in the background, her songs must surely be viewed by outsiders as being at least partially exotic.
The release, by Real World, of Nazarkhan's UK debut Yol Bolsin in 2003 resulted in a tour with Peter Gabriel, appearances at the WOMAD festival and on Jools Holland's Later... programme. For this successor, Sevara called up Russian punky-electro producer Victor Sologub and the pair started laying down tracks in Tashkent. Subsequently, the results were tweaked (or possibly airbrushed) in Real World's own West Country studios, with Bruno Ellingham at the controls.
Who can say what went down between these two locations? Nazarkhan insists that this is her own undiluted product, but then why wasn't one producer sufficient? This is getting like Hollywood scriptwriting! In the end, the electronic elements of the songs sound quite unimaginative, set to the bland side of 1980s minimalism, where all the sounds are straight out of the pre-programmed bag. The advantage of this is the space that surrounds Sevara's epic vocals, and the exposure given to the swirling mist, gently chattering percussion and mud-plop electro-emissions that populate the soundstage.
She's deliberately teetering on the edge between accessibility and bland-out, and just about pulls off the challenge. On the second track, "Bu Sevgi", the lute phrases are answered by ringtone synth, and the slow-paced mood is set for most of the duration. The vibe could be described as soupy, with too little variation. Towards the end, "Kuigai" and "Ne Kechar" can boast a raunchier electro-palette, with the latter even picking up some well-needed speed.

Sevara Nazarkhan - Tortadur

Posted By MiOd On Wednesday, September 18, 2013 0 comments
When the Uzbek star Sevara Nazarkhan released her last album, Sen, four years ago, it sounded as if she was trying a little too hard to live up to her billing as a global diva from central Asia, by matching folk songs from the region against a swirl of beats and keyboard effects. I suggested that for her next album she should experiment by switching off the electronica and using only traditional instruments. Now she has done just that, with compelling results. Recorded in Uzbekistan, but mixed at Abbey Road, this is an album dominated by pained love ballads and Sufi devotional songs that date back to the 15th century, performed live by a group of leading traditional musicians, seated in a circle with the singer. The lineup includes the dutar and tanbour lutes, ney flute and qanun zither, and the delicate instrumental work is dominated by Sevara's thoughtful vocals. The songs range from the charming, hypnotic Aylagach to Qarghalar, a lament written by an anti-tsarist Russian being sent to Siberia, and performed solo with quietly threatening percussive backing that sounds like a clattering train. An intimate, gently emotional set.

This particular album is devoted to real Uzbek classical songs with no modern fusion.It is so great and real.Sevara is bringing the great calssical uzbek music to be listened worldwide, the great follower of legendary Munadjat Yulchieva.

Songs From A Persian Garden

Posted By MiOd On Tuesday, September 17, 2013 0 comments
Songs From A Persian Garden
Mahsa and Marjan Vahdat
Dirty Linen (p.57) - "The arrangements are modern in style, with a light jazz backing on most with the setar and flute adding the eastern elements. One standout track is 'Dorna,' which features just the two singers trading off vocal lines for almost seven minutes."
Global Rhythm (Publication) (p.54) - "[Their voices] flow with unrivaled grace an sorrow, blending into one intimate harmony."

Resonating with lush instrumentation and the sacred, lyrical richness of Persian poetry, this album represents a very important milestone in contemporary Iranian history. On May 22nd, 2007 the Italian and Norwegian embassies helped Mahsa and Marjan Vahdat plan a musical performance in Tehran, where women are banned from singing solo in public. Taking the stage without veils, the sisters stood together before that audience, bravely wielding the weapon of music against the continued oppression of women. The duo is now performing internationally and continuing to campaign against censorship.

On May 22, 2007 a remarkable concert was held in a Persian garden in Tehran. With the help of both the Italian and Norwegian Embassies, two Iranian sisters, Mahsa and Marjan Vahdat performed without veils and bravely chose to use their music as a weapon against the oppression of women in their country. This concert was recorded and released by Norwegian label, Kirkelig Kulturverksted (KKV), late last year. Songs From a Persian Garden was produced by Erik Hillestad who also put together the critically acclaimed Lullabies From The Axis of Evil.

...If we want to understand what treasures we may find in the fantastic country of Iran, we should listen to the magic and the power given to its music and poetry. The fact that women in this huge country of 70 million people will never stop singing wherever they can and because of the intolerant doctrines and laws, Iranian officials contribute to making their singing one of the most powerful weapons to fight all kinds of reduction of the human rights in their country. --Erik Hillestad

The US version of Songs From A Persian Garden will also include a duet with Mahsa and Melissa Etheridge on Bob Dylan s I Shall Be Released .

Mahsa and Marjan were introduced to the American public on Lullabies... with Sad Sol , a duet with English diva, Sarah Jane Morris and a traditional Iranian Lullaby, Lalala Gohle Laleh .

This (mostly) live album from a pair of Iranian sisters is an absolute melodic feast. Sampling the range of music -- from the classical modes of "Saghi Nameh" to the opening lush Kurdish theme of "Mina" -- is a joy, and nowhere more than on "Dorna," where their voices shine, largely unaccompanied, on a more contemporary piece that manages to sound timeless. There are some fascinating little diversions, as when the lullaby "Gole Laleh" morphs into the spiritual "She's Got the Whole World in Her Hands" (note the gender change!) sung softly by guitarist Knut Reiersrud, who also brings a lot to this CD instrumentally. Apart from the lovingly sinuous voices, what impresses most is the rich, loving variety of sensual and exotic melodies filling the disc. It's close to a sensory overload -- but stops short, just at the perfect point.

Balkan Beat Box - Blue Eyed Black Boy

Posted By MiOd On Monday, September 16, 2013 0 comments
Most world music bands concentrate on a mash-up of African, Caribbean, and African American styles, but as you can probably guess from the band's name, that's not the case with Balkan Beat Box. Drummer and beatmaster Tamir Muskat and sax player Ori Kaplan, the band's core members, are both Israeli immigrants and met while they were playing in Gogol Bordello. They've adopted that band's freewheeling feel for fusing disparate Eastern European musics into something that's greater than the sum of its parts. The fractured meters of Balkan music may be pop's last frontier, but by combining them with the familiar pulse of reggae, rock, and hip-hop -- not to mention the gypsy music of the Arab world and the Mediterranean -- Balkan Beat Box has created something unique and eminently danceable. The drumming on Blue Eyed Black Boy was recorded in real time with real instruments, then diced and sampled to give the music the feel of a live gig. With special guests Orkestar Jovica Ajdarevica and the Serbian gypsy band Kal in tow, BBB take their sound to another level of excitement. "War Again" is an asymmetrical bit of Balkan dancehall reggae with MC Tomer Yosef delivering a powerful plea for peace over the massed ompah of the Orkestar Jovica Ajdarevica brass band. Orkestar Jovica is also featured on a couple of instrumentals -- "Balcumbia," adds Arab, flamenco, and cumbia beats to the mix, while "Smatron" gives Orkestar members a chance to show off their chops with lengthy solos delivered over a smooth, funky reggae beat. The title track is a lullaby for Yosef's new son, a lilting reggae rocker with some striking spaghetti western twang. The song's message of tolerance for people of all ethnicities and colors is still more a prayer than a reality, but it's a timely nod to the multi-cultural society we now inhabit. The set also includes the Balkan R&B of "My Baby," the funky Bulgarian salsa of "Lijepa Mare," and "Move It," a dance-happy blend of Punjabi, Balkan, and Jamaican beats. Ten years ago, nobody would have expected Gogol Bordello's gypsy punk music to break into the mainstream, but they signed with Columbia in 2010. Balkan Beat Box has a similar ethos, and the compelling combination of styles they've forged on Blue Eyed Black Boy shows them capable of making the leap from the underground to the A-list.

Africando - Baloba!

Posted By MiOd On Sunday, September 15, 2013 0 comments
Baloba! digs deeper into theme of African-Latin unity. The grooves find ground that transcends ethnicities and geography. David Byrne has said that the "music of the African Diaspora has colonized the planet". Africando brings this point home in force. On this album, Africando taps the source of the Cuban sexteto tipico of the 1920's and 1930's. "Aicha" sung by Nicholas Menheim is a fine tuned salsa that is a dancer's delight. The changes are subtle and distinct. Dancers groove on change, subtle or sudden. The honey-habenero voice of Gnonnas Pedro keeps the flame hot with "Huenouhwo", utilizing tres guitar accompaniment. This chameleon group strikes at the heart of classic Cuban music of the 1950's and brings it to vital tropicality in the new millennium of 2000. Their mix of Senegalese Wolof-Spanish bridges the transatlantic gulf between mother Africa and the new world in a smooth danceable style that lives on and connects. Ronnie Baro's guaracha, "Guarachea mi Chula", is right in the pocket and puts out lots of heat. "Demal", sung by Nicholas Menheim, is a tasteful tres track, not only for the vocal but also for the guitar-trumpet-percussion interplay. "Aminata" features the Senegalese super-singer Laba Sosseh and it's a track that blisters with bright brass that harkens back to the Havana of the 1950's. Baloba! is a Yoruba exclamation that expresses something astonishing. Africando has produced another gem of an album. Highly recommended.

Vishwa Mohan Bhatt - Lure of Desert

Posted By MiOd On Tuesday, September 10, 2013 0 comments

" Music is the language of GOD created for the benefit of Mankind. To me music is the medium to talk to GOD."...."Every time we perform we think in our mind that we are worshipping Goddesses Saraswati, the symbol of knowledge and wisdom, and we pray that She be with us so that we can create good music."....Pandit Vishwa Mohan Bhatt



Wikipedia: Vishwa Mohan Bhatt also known as V. M. Bhatt (born July 12, 1952) is an Indian slide guitar player. Bhatt is the creator of the Mohan Veena. He performs Hindustani classical music and won a Grammy Award in 1994. It is for his Grammy winning album A Meeting By The River with Ry Cooder and other fusion and pan-cultural collaborations with Western artists like Taj Mahal, Béla Fleck and Jerry Douglas, that Bhatt is best known, although exposure such as an appearance on the 2004 Crossroads Guitar Festival, which was organized by Eric Clapton, does allow for this side of his playing to reach a larger audience. He received the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 1998 and the Padma Shri in 2002. Folk musician Harry Manx, who studied with Vishwa Mohan Bhatt for five years, plays a Mohan Veena. Counting Crows' Bassist Matt Malley also plays a Mohan Veena and is a student and friend of Vishwa Mohan Bhatt. Vishwa Mohan is married to Padma and lives in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India, with his two sons and his wife. His elder son Salil Bhatt is a renowned Mohan veena player (and also a player of the Satvik veena), while his younger son Saurabh Bhatt is a well known composer. His nephew, Krishna Bhatt, plays the sitar and tabla.


Official Biography: Official Biography: Creator of the MOHAN VEENA and the winner of the GRAMMY AWARD, Vishwa Mohan has mesmerized the world with his pristine pure, delicate yet fiery music. It is due to Vishwa's maiden mega effort that he rechristened guitar as MOHAN VEENA, his genius creation and has established it at the top most level in the mainstream of Indian Classical Music scenario, thereby proving the essence of his name VISHWA (meaning the world) and MOHAN (meaning charmer) and indeed , a world charmer he is. Being the foremost disciple of Pt. Ravi Shankar, Vishwa Mohan belongs to that elite body of musicians which traces its origin to the Moughal emperor Akbar's court musician TANSEN and his guru the Hindu Mystic Swami Haridas. Vishwa Mohan Bhatt has attracted international attention by his successful indianisation of the western Hawaiian guitar with his perfect assimilation of sitar, sarod & veena techniques, by giving it a evolutionary design & shape and by adding 14 more strings helping him to establish the instrument MOHAN VEENA to unbelievable heights. With blinding speed and faultless legato, Bhatt is undoubtedly one of the most expressive, versatile and greatest slide player s in the world. Being a powerhouse performer, Vishwa's electrifying performance always captivates the audience whether in the United States of America, Europe, Gulf countries or his motherland India. Vishwa Mohan has become the cultural ambassador of India by carrying the Herculean task of glorifying and popularizing Indian culture and music throughout the world. Outstanding features of Bhatt's baaj (style) are his natural ability to play the 'Tantrakari Ang' and incorporate the 'Gayaki Ang' on Mohan Veena which is the greatest advantage of this instrument over traditional Indian instrument like sitar, sarod and veena. It was no surprise that Vishwa Mohan with his sheer virtuosity and limitless supply of melodies won the highest music award of the world, the GRAMMY AWARD IN 1994 along with Ry Cooder for their World Music Album, 'A MEETING BY THE RIVER' enhancing his celebrity status not only as a star performer but also as an improviser and a soulful composer. Vishwa Mohan has performed extensively in the USA, USSR, Canada, the Great Britain, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Scotland, Switzerland, Denmark, then scaling the Gulf of Dubai, Al-Sharjah, Bahrain, Muscat, Abu Dhabi etc. and throughout India.

Abdel Ali Slimani - Mraya

Posted By White Rose On Tuesday, September 10, 2013 0 comments
bdel Ali Slimani was born in the U Anasser District of Algiers, the heart of a vibrant cosmopolitan port with one eye on Europe, the other on Africa. Music was a pervasive aspect of his childhood, from traditional Saharan and Berber dances, to Western funk, to reggae and Arab styles. During his teens he witnessed the explosion of Rai music, a youthful revolution headed by Khaled. Ali was entranced and dreamed of becoming a singer.

After traveling and working around Europe he settled in England, where he became known as a DJ and Rai enthusiast amongst the North African community in London, whipping up storms at weddings and parties as well as singing and playing impromptu sessions.

When in 1991, Jah Wobble was looking for a new singer for his Invaders of the Heart Band, Ali came to his attention. Within three weeks of their first meeting, he was singing on stage at WOMAD festival in Toronto, Canada. The new Invaders line-up caused a sensation.

Over the next three years Ali Slimani was an integral part of the Invaders of the Heart line-up which transcended musical boundaries and created powerful and inspiring music, in concerts all over the world and on record. His contribution to the classic "Take Me To God" album was considered by many to be a highlight of a star-studded album.

Ali duetted with Sinead O'Connor on the 12" version of her "Fire In Babylon" single and put in an astonishing performance on Top of the Pops, the first Arab singer ever to appear on this legendary TV programme.

Mraya is an assured debut, with Abdel Ali Slimani's Algerian Rai roots finding solid ground with trance-like grooves. The album's theme reflects the emigre looking back at his home to which he cannot return, the music taking Rai to new areas, but retaining the spirit of its desert roots.

Vishwa Mohan Bhatt - Galaxy Of Strings

Posted By MiOd On Tuesday, September 10, 2013 0 comments

Vishwa Mohan "V.M." Bhatt is one of India's most innovative musicians. The inventor of the Mohan Veena, a nineteen string modified archtop guitar with three melody strings, four drone strings and twelve sympathetic strings, Bhatt has created a sound that blends the western Hawaiian guitar with sitar, sarod and veena techniques. The first Indian musician to be awarded the "Musical Scientist award" in Banglore, India, Bhatt was praised by "Acoustic Guitar" magazine as "one of the greatest and mosty expressive slide players in the world". The "Edmonton Journal" referred to Bhatt as "an inspiration even to Western guitarists". A long time student of Ravi Shankar, Bhatt belongs to an elite group of musicians whose imeage traces back to Mughal emperor Akbar's court musician Tansen and his Hindu guru, Swarmi Haridas. In addition to six solo albums, Bhatt has recorded with Ry Cooder, Bela Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Taj Mahal and Arabian oudh player Simon Shaheen. Bhatt became the first Indian to collaborate with a Chinese musician when he toured with Erhu player Jei Bing Chen. Bhatt's collaboration with Ry Cooder, "A Meeting By The River" received a Grammy award in 1994. His collaboration with Bela Fleck and Jei Bing Chen, "Tabula Rosa", recorded in a Santa Barbara, California church in October 1994, was nominated for a Grammy. Tunes from "A Meeting By The River" and "Mumtaz Mahal", recorded with Taj Mahal, were featured on the soundtracks of films, "Two Days In The Valley" and the Oscar award-winning, "Dead Man Walking". Bhatt is a skilled composer. His composition, "Raga Ganga", was performed during celebration of India's fiftieth year of independance.
