about

Following the success of their collaborative CD, Carnatic Connection (2016), leading South Indian violinist Jyotsna Srikanth and Bollywood Brass Band have produced an EP of new material, based on South Indian raags (scales) and taals (rhythmic cycles).

Themes and grooves for Carnatic Suite: A Day In Bangalore were composed by Jyotsna whilst in Bangalore, and WhatsApp’d to Kay and Sarha of Bollywood Brass Band in London! BBB’s arrangers then skilfully joined the dots, combining the subtleties of Indian violin with the eclectic palette of BBB’s brass and percussion, and the South Indian percussion and vocal beatbox wizardry of RN Prakash.
