"Jay Asu Babu! - EthnoSuperLounge Live!" CD
The first EthnoSuperLounge
CD, was dedicated to Shen's guru-ji of tabla, Kaviraj Ashutosh Bhattacharya
who believed very strongly that music should be a divine experience,
spontaneous and without planning or ego; the musicians should
simultaneously be humble and set themselves free to explore and take
themselves and the audience on a journey into the unknown. This CD was
compiled in that spirit from concert recordings where in many cases we
had no idea what would happen. As these recordings were generally off
the sound desk onto MiniDisc, the quality may not be as "hi-fi" as your
average studio recording, but we believe there's heaps more life and
spirit in our music! (Thanks to Daniel Fournier for remastering the CD.)
The first few tracks are very Indian-oriented improvisations; about
half-way through the CD the tempo picks up with some percussive sounds
and towards the end an electronic element is added, culminating in a
mellow sound collage of early morning Varanasi to wind down... Please
