Our very best wishes for a musical and harmonious 2018.
This New Year is very much focused on the continuing journey taken by Kaushiki Chakraborty and Sabir Khan and the two major creations: Nirmaan Indian electric station and Safar Beat, both reviving the Indian tradition in a very creative and outstanding way.
Nirmaan Indian electric station is a rare blend of tradition and métissage of acoustic and electric amplified music of four French musicians ( Antoine Lahay, Pierre Droual, Jean-Marie Nivaine and Etienne Cabaret) with the Indo-French Parveen Sabrina Khan‘s rooted and ethereal voice.
The five piece band has won in November 2017 the rewarded French price “Prix des musiques d’ici “ and will perform on the 31st January 2018 at Festival Au Fil des Voix at the Alhambra in Paris (France), in July 2018 at Festival des Suds in Arles ( France), in autumn 2018 at the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris (France) and many more to come…
The second great collaboration is the new project Safar Beat with Ilyas Raphael Khan and Aglaé Ganjei contributing to accentuate the rhythms of the flamenco dance by the tremendous beatboxing and tablas (Indian drums) beats. The result is a perfect encounter between tradition and modernity with exciting and vibrant ambiance.
