Mishra und Embryo
18. April 2019 um 20:00 bis 23:59
Magische Momente echter Weltmusik ergeben sich bei der Begegnung der Gruppe Embryo mit den beiden Klangkünstlern Deobrat Mishra (Sitar) und Prashant Mishra (Tablas), die einer der großen Musikerdynastien der nordindischen Großstadt Benares/Varanasi entstammen. An diesem Abend verbinden sich klassische indische Musik in höchster Vollendung mit den rhythmischen Strukturen europäischer Herkunft, wie sie der aus dem Jazz und Krautrock stammende, Bandleader von Embryo, Christian Burchard (1946 – 2018) in den vergangenen 48 Jahren entwickelt hat und seine Tochter Marja Burchard seit 2015/2016 weiterführt.
“Exciting, virtuosic, sensual, beautiful!“
There has been a force of gravity between Indian classical music and jazz for many decades — the push and pull of improvisation, the exciting rhythmic language.
