Spinifex Orchestra  & Dr.Suma Sudhindra Veena program

 

 

Hollands famous dutch jazz ensemble Spinifex teams up with Dr. Suma Sudhindra, the foremost exponent of the Veena of her generation.

 

This unique musical collaboration brings out the best of Carnatic music and Dutch jazz. Expressive improvisations, thrilling rhythms are woven together with classy instrumentations and rich compositions. New works written by Spinifex members and Dr. Sudhindra show off the talents of the musicians and create a new hybrid between jazz and Carnatic music.

 

“The range of the nine-man Spinifex Orchestra is enormous.  It can whisper but also rage… Colourful, contrasting and inspired, Spinifex’s music is similar to the broad range of the late Charles Mingus.”
