Jazz @ DI : Day 3
The day 3 of the Congo Square & DI Jazz Fest 2011 had the Karnataka College of Percussion with Ramamani and TAS Mani teamed up with BuJazzO (a 21 piece youth jazz orchestra from Germany) to present a mix of Carnatic music and jazz fusion.
Out of the compositions played, City Life (written by Louis Banks) was brilliant. The encore with chants of Govinda Jaye Jaye with sax and trumpets made an intriguing sound-scape.
I’m afraid that the pictures are not up to the mark. I was down with a severe cold and had an extremely runny nose and a pre-concert double shot of brandy with warm water was of no help at all.
The shots were predominantly taken with the Nikon 85mm f1.8 on the Nikon D300 along with a few shots taken with the Nikon 18-70mm.
