Mesmerising notes of Jazz

Mesmerising notes of Jazz

Music Festival

On the sprawling garden of Nehru Park the Delhi International Jazz Festival - an eclectic program filled with groundbreaking talent from around the world ,was recently organised. 

Thousands of music lovers, especially jazz enthusiasts thronged the venue to enjoy the mesmerising notes of the international artistes who came from different countries.
Entering its fourth edition, the jazz festival organised by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) included performances by artistes like Roland Quartet from the US, Smarton Trio from Hungary, Black Slade Jazz Rock from Goa, Tres Butacas from Colombia, Obara Quartet from Poland, Mina Agossi Trio from France, The PJ Perrt Trio from Canada, Moderhan from South Korea, Ximo Tebar and Ivam Jazz Ensemble from Spain and Joe Alvarez from Mumbai.

The Ari Roland Quartet played its version of ‘Georgia On My Mind’ and Lata Mangeshkar’s Dil-e-Naadan.

It was an enthralling event as foot tapping and heads bobbing was a common sight all around. 

Tres Butacas from Colombia beautifully played their drums, guitar and bass. 

They began with some American music and mixed it with elements of Arabic folk melodies. 

It was the camaraderie between the drum and the tabla that made the performance captivating. 

The group also performed their hit number Rio Cali from their album.

Agossi Trio from France jazzed up the stage with their tribute to Jimi Hendrix. 

Their music was inclined towards rock. The vocalist whistled and repeated songs for a crowd that continue to root for more. 

On the other hand Moderhan band from South Korea--comprising Young An on the Daegeum (a Korean flute), Seong Jae on the drums, Hangyu Park on the piano and Sora Sim on the vocals – performed a blend of Korean classical with a hint of Jazz.
