Amstel Raga

2011 | AR008

PIZZICATO:
It’s definitely a deep quest for a mix of Western and Indian concepts, which results in a CD with inspiring, highly floating music, full of unexpected rhythms and colors.

But also technically the Indian tabla player, and saxophonists Remco Jak, Olivier Sliepen, Bas Apswoude and Ties Mellema are mesmerizing !
