Sri Jimi, Carnatic Rock

Monday, October 11, 2010

The electric guitarist Prasanna comes from a South Indian classical music background, but he also grew up under the influence of western guitarists like Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix, in addition to his exposure to top Indian film soundtrack composers like A.R. Rahman and Illayaraja.  For this New Sounds, Prasanna brings his electric guitar and three percussionists (Poongulam Subramaniam on mridangam, S. Karthick on ghatam and Bangalore Amrit on kanjira) into the studio for a live performance of some of his Carnatic rock/World Jazz musical hybrid, including "Sri Jimi" and "Bowling for Peace."  There’s also music by sax player Rudresh Mahanthappa, in collaboration with Kadri Gopalnath,  from Mahanthappa's latest "Kinsmen."
