Karnataka 2

A couple of years ago I was working with the Chitraleka dance company and they commissioned me to compose music for their new production. They retain strong connections with south India, I spent a few weeks in the capital of Carnatic music, Bangalore, where I had my pick of top session musicians. It was a great experience - I met so many lovely people. Here are my hosts - Balu (S.V.Balakrishna) famous mrdangam player, Vasudha Balakrishna, a classical singer, with their son and budding mrdangamist, Pranav, and Chitraleka (left).
Here are a couple of tracks from those sessions....
