JtPac in association with Eventually International Entertainment presents a unique Concert of World Music on 28th August, 2011 at 7 pm. It features Chitravina Ravikiran, Jovino Santos Neto, Fazal Qureshi, Charumathi Raghuraman & Anand Anantha Krishnan.
Beyond Kipling celebrates the musical synergy between an Indian composer and Brazilian pianist along with other musicians playing instruments as varied as tabla, djembe, violin, mridangam and slide vina, blended with Carnatic, Folk, Jazz and South American samba, choro, baião, xote, forró and marcha. However, today’s globalized scenario points to eclectic cultural ethos, going beyond Kipling, especially in music where with great talent on both sides, the boundaries seem to melt, heralding a new world order!
