Milap announce Spring 2024 programme of Indian music

The Attuned Quartet and Milap will make their yearly appearance at the Liverpool International Jazz Festival on Saturday, February 24, to kick off the spring season.

The group, which includes Gurdain Rayatt on tabla, Jack Jennings on guitar, Omar Puente on electric violin, and Sant Jayasinha on cello, is blazing their own trail with an incredibly genuine take on Indian classical music.

Since each composition is made by hand, an engaging atmosphere is created in which improvisation can occur. Harmonic elements were developed to enhance the character of the melodic material, which is based on the Raags of both North and South India.

Even though the group captures the intricate rhythms of Indian music, its overall sound is heavily influenced by Latin and Jazz cultures. When layered into arrangements, these opposing rhythms blend together to produce a powerful effect.

World-renowned sitar player and avant-garde musician Niladri Kumar will make his Liverpool debut with virtuoso percussionist Yashwant Vaishnav at the Spring Season’s last show on Friday, May 10.

Niladri Kumar, who celebrates Classical Indian Heritage, captivates audiences with his distinct style that is beloved and elicits strong emotions.

His innovative invention of the “zitar,” a hybrid of the electric guitar and sitar, produces a distinctive rock-guitar sound. His skill with the sitar produces a sound unmatched by others, with whispery string bends, quick taans, and deft double stops.

Taking Part Niladri and Yashwant Vaishnav, the legendary tabla player, are two outstanding examples of Indian percussionists.
