Hey.....Well.....I'm not too sure whether this topic fits in 'this' forum....But when I saw the Thread below on L.Shankar and his fusion works, I thought it would be 'safe' enough to start this thread 'HERE'....I'm looking out for Fusion recordings by Indian artistes....recorded "LIVE"......Desperately searching for Videos of Indian artistes performing fusion.....(L.Subramaniam, L.Shankar, Taufiq Qureshi, Shankar Mahadevan, Kumaresh-Ganesh, Vikku Vinayakram, Sivamani, Ravi Shankar "ETC" {thats a DAMN IMP Word} videos...to name a few......)....Any support will be thoroughly appreciated.......Even Audio recorded live is OK...But Videos preferred......

I will soon be getting a few videos of Dr.L.Subramaniam's live concert in Mumbai
that took place recently....and will try and post them here......But I'm expecting some decent response soon from all of you.........on this Thread.....Plss reply....

Absolutely Spot-On Aakarsh......Its really true that a thread on contemporary fusion stuff by Indian artistes was clearly felt amiss....Infact I even thought of sending a message to the Admin to start a forum on this......I really mean it....this SUBJECT is AMAZZINGLLY HUGE ENUFFF to cover a Forum in itself....The whole world knows the amount of collaborations Indian artistes have been having with not only artistes from the WEST, but also other Indian artistes from Different Genres, in presenting really Great Fusion works.....

But I thought it would be better....or even "Smarter", to first start by atleast embarking on a new thread on this Genre.....Later...going by the response....Things can be sorted out.....But anyways......A good start to the Topic.....Thanks for that Quick response.....Hope more responses pour in......KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!

Why restrict one to fusion music created by Indian musicians alone?

With a more electro-trance flavor can be added Laszlo Hortobagyi from Hungary, who made some fantastic Ethno-Electronic fusion, Suns of Arqa (their Cosmic Jugalbandi, IMO, is the best album so far), and The Gayan Uttejak Orchestra (established by Hortobagyi).

Then, you have more traditional fusion created by George Harrison of The Beatles fame (his eclectic collection of sounds very ethnic in nature in the soundtrack of Wonderwall comes to mind instantly!). Joe Harriott and John Mayer under the name of group "Indo-Jazz fusion" created music that incorporated Indian Classical music at a deeper and structural level, rather than as a superficial layer characterised by the use of a few Indian instruments, such as sitar in place of guitar. Those of you, who are old enough might probably recall Joe and John's serious efforts in this direction in 60s. When Indo-Jazz fusion is being talked about, there is a name that can not escape a mention and that is of John McLaughlin's. If there is one man in the West, who really brought Indian music to the West, then it is McLaughlin, who also formed Shakti (with Zakir Hussain) and Mahavishnu Orchestra. Jan Garbarek also produced an album with Fateh Ali Khan, called Ragas and Sagas, which is one of the most melodic album I have ever come across.

Harry Manx (I vividly recall his Rag Jog rendition on Dog My Cat!), Philip Glass, Paul Horn, and Gabor Szabo are a few others who have produced at least one good album each on this subject.

There have also been some ambient music based fusion creation by the sitar player Al Gromer Khan (listen to his Divan I Khas and Mahogany Nights),Karunesh (Bruno), Ravi Katshuraga, and James Asher.

On the other hand, Trilok Gurtu, Karsh Kale, Nitin Sahwney, Badmarsh and Shri, Sheila Chandra, DJ Cheb I Sabbah(their Krishna Lila albums is a good one!), Jai Uttal, Prem Joshua, Loop Guru, Toronto Tabla Ensemble, Talvin Singh, and M-Path are known for making more catchy and fast paced fusion (but not necessarily good!) music that has a strong appeal to the younger generations.

However, there is one group that remains my personal favorite among all of these and that is Tabla Beat Science. They (apart from Shakti) represent what is the best of fusion and underline the possibilities for creation of such music emerging out of this ensemble of great musicians composed of tabla guru Zakir Hussain, sonorous sarangi player Ustad Sultan Khan, bassist Bill Laswell, and young drummer Karsh Kale. If you have never heard their Tala Matrix and Live in San Francisco at Stern Grove, you have major euphoria coming your way, that is, as and when you do listen.

Cheers.

I recently came across entire album of Karsh Kale named Realize. I was wondering if there's more of his work out there. It's beautiful. I am yet to listen to Trilok Gurtu. My cousin is a big fan of all of these guys you mentioned in last paragraph. When we talked of her favorites last time she had also given me names like Bikram Ghosh, Dhol Foundation, Asian Travels, Colonial Cousins, Buddha Beats. Do these fall under same category? So where does one go to buy this music? any idea?

Chitz,

Karsh's father gave me his album Realize many years ago. That's how I got it, then.

Bikram Ghosh, a tabla player received training from well known Gyan Prakash Ghosh and he has an album called Talking Tabla available at emusic. It'd probably not be right to categorize Dhol Foundation and Colonial Cousins as fusion music. Their is little western about them. Buddha Beats (and, even expensive and import Buddha Bar series with Cafe Del Mar and Hotel Costes) are at best chill and lounge music, which can be bought from any online music stores but I'd suggest you to not to spend your precious money on these kind of albums --- to give an example, most of the Buddha Bar albums at amazon cost anywhere from 25 to 50 dollars. The quality of music on them is not commensurate with such price tags, in fact far from it.

If you really want to listen to some good, hip and evolving music produced by our Indian groups, listen to Indian Ocean and Medieval Punditz. Indian Ocean's music on the banned movie Black Friday is the best from a young group.

Trilok Gurtu's tracks figure somewhere in top of my choices for listening, especially in the ones where he employed the voice of his late mother Shobha Gurtu. Remembrance is one such album.

A lot of musicians, I have mentioned in the previous post are attached to independent labels and hence are well-represented at emusic. You can find almost all of Al Gromer Khan, DJ Cheb I Sabbah, Asian Travels, Terry Oldfield, Prem Joshua, Suns of Arqa, The Gayan Uttejak Orchestra, Laszlo Hortobagyi, Badmarsh, and others there. Let me know if you are looking for specific recommendations and I'd be glad to suggest.

My my! you are a big fusion fan I'd say. Please do suggest some personal favorites. I am definitely believing your opinion here since I have no background in this whatsoever.

Shyam, admins only asked you to not to post tracks. There is no restriction on discussing anyone and that's what we have been doing.

Cheers.

HULLO!!!!! I'm back.......Yes Aakarsh.....got your reply on that........So...here...are the details on the tracks from Dr.L.Subramaniam's "LIVE AT MOSCOW".....well....as I mentioned earlier.....The composer is Dr.L.Subramaniam ..and the conductor (Well, I goofed up a bit on this tongue.gif )......Well, this track was originally composed and performed by Dr.L.Subramaniam and Zubin Mehta as the conductor......Later....Dr.L.Subramaniam has played these compositions on different occassions with different Orchestras.........

This particular recording (LIVE AT MOSCOW) has two tracks. Here are the 'credit lists' for both: -

1. "FANTASY ON VEDIC CHANTS" (Duration: 29:10 mins)
Dr.L.Subramaniam - Violinist/composer
Orchestra - Kirov Symphony Orchestra of Leningrad
Conductor - Maestro Djemal Dalgat

2. "DOUBLE CONCERTO" (Duration: 30:26 mins)
Dr.L.Subramaniam - Violinist/Composer
Maxim Fedotov - Violin
Orchestra - Moscow Radio and TV Large Symphony Orchestra
Conductor - Maestro Vladimir Fedoseyev

Now, All you forum members......I have a small problem on this....The tracks are in mp3 format, but still too big to upload. They are 26.5 MB and 28.8 MB respectively. So I dunno how to upload. Any assistance in this regard will be appreciated.

GKS:

If you don't already have it, please download the freeware WINRAR. It gives you the option to split the files.

Since each upload has to be under 10m, you'd need to split the first track into 3 files of each 9m and the second into 4 files each 8m.

Once the split files are dowloaded into the same folder, upon extracting just one file the rest of the files get extracted automatically and merge as a single track.

If you stop trying to make sense of it all, you'll be less confused. Reality is an illusion.

Hi Unni......sorry to keep you and everybody waiting for soooo long.......

Got that reply of yours. Well I do have WINRAR, But had used it only to play songs downloaded from here. For the past many days, following your advice, I've been trying to 'create an archive', and split the song. But I'm not getting it right inspite of many many attempts. First of all, I'm a bit technologically challenged.....(Realised that just now)......I dunno how many bytes are 1 MB.......wink2.gif...HEHEHEHHE.....(YES....Thats a BIGG JOKE NOW, right??) And WINRAR asks to enter how many bytes I need each of the 'split' portions to be.....I tried different options...Nothing working......In short....I'm nowhere near the result......PLSSS HELP ME OUT....!!!!!!!!!;( sad1.gif
