"BANDISH FUSION" by SUBHEN CHATTERJEE & "KARMA"
BANDISH FUSION is a project by internationally acclaimed tabla maestro Subhen Chatterjee & his unique fusion band KARMA .
It is an experience of soul-stirring effect of sheer melodic beauty fused with incredible rhythms taking one to a whole new level of musical raptures.
KARMA kicked off its journey way back in 1985 being one of the very first bands of its kind in India & is now surely regarded as one of the longest existing front ranking bands of the country .
KARMA plays a novel fusion music which combines Indian music with elements of contemporary jazz,Afro-cuban & Mediterranean music. Their musical style was an unprecedented blending of genres combined with complex rhythms in unusual time signatures with a thoughtful blend of improvisational concept that was rooted in jazz as well as Indian music and harmonic influence from European classical music.
SUBHEN always had particular ideas for the instrumentation of the group, in keeping with his highly original concept of genre-blending in compositions. He particularly wanted Indian Music as an integral contributor to its overall sound. As the group evolved, SUBHEN adopted what became his trademark.
