Attila in India
Blending Indian music with jazz
|During Attila's latest visit to India, he spent time just absorbing the
music and the music scene, listening, sitting in on rehearsals, hanging out,
going to concerts, studios, composing, playing and recording with some incredible musicians. He learned a lot from observing how they approach their music,
compose and improvise, and applied some of these ideas to his own musical concepts.
Check out the following videos:
The first one is Attila's original
exciting Indian fusion composition "Meeting in Ten" recorded
at Keerthana Studio in Mumbai,
India, featuring Attila Fias on piano and Indian musical masters Deepak Pandit on violin
and Rajesh Rajbhatt on tabla.
|The second video is a beautiful composition by Deepak Pandit entitled
"Goddess of Music",
features the same musicians and was recorded in the same studio. The piece
starts with the introduction of the raga, and setting of the mood. Then the
tabla comes and sets the tempo and the 7/4 time signature, and the theme is
stated and elaborated several times, followed by improvisation from all
instruments. The piece ends with a restatement of the theme.
composition was featured in an article Attila wrote for the
November/December 2016 issue of Canadian Musician magazine.
