Nirmaan destination: Indian electric station
Exploring in India the path of the modal music, deeply investigated by Erik Marchand, famous singer and artistic and educational director of “Kreiz Breizh Akademi”, two French musicians: Etienne Cabaret and Antoine Lehay discovered the mutual musical connexions with the songs interpreted by the Indian classical singer: Parveen Sabrina Khan.
Nevertheless the deep Breton and Rajasthani roots, Nirmaan was born. The music of this ensemble hence becomes a territory for exploration, improvisation, influenced by amplified music, progressive rock, pop as well as Indian classical music.
We talk here of a popular music that is actual, creative, without boundaries.
Nirmaan has been performing in India (Alliance Francaise de Delhi, Blue Frog, Kawa Cultural Centre), in France (Festival Kann Al Loar , Festival de Cornouaille, Fisel in Rostrenen, Les Vieilles Charrues..) to name but a few, receiving a great applause from the audience.
