Jazz Goa launches Fusion Lounge

Jazz Goa Jazz Goa Jazz Goa
The Brown Indian Band-Fusion Lounge The Brown Indian Band's Fusion Lounge is a chilled out, laidback sound of indo-jazz fusion. The album features Dhiraj Kapadia on bansuri, Prashant Salil on santoor, Tony Dias on keyboards, Colin D'Cruz on fretless bass and Jayesh Dhargalkar on tabla. The Band led by Colin, has floating members and has featured some of the most accomplished Indian classical musicians in concert with jazz virtuosos over the years. Indian classical music can be compared to jazz as both are forms of improvised music. Indian classical music is linear and uses just one scale (raga) to improvise within a composition whereas jazz has a much broader palette for improvisation where multiple scales can be used to improvise through harmonic changes. Indian classical music however, has some of the world's most complex rhythm structures and subtle quarter tones that add an exciting new dimension to jazz. The Brown Indian Band uses the best of both forms of improvisation to create India's contribution to world music. The Brown Indian band had performed as a fourteen member ensemble at the Kala Academy for the first international film festival in Goa. Fusion Lounge is available free of cost at http://www.brownindianband.com
