The Embassy of France in India and Culturesfrance presented the young Indo-French group, Sharik Hasan trio at a magical evening in the City. The enthusiastic crowd of music lovers settled down on the lawns of a City hotel to listen to the magic of Sharik Hasan, Gael Patrina and Thibault Perriard, all coming from diverse musical backgrounds but sharing a common vision.

For Bangalore's jazz lovers Sharik Hasan is a familiar and very popular talent being a student himself of the Bangalore School of Music. He started learning classical piano at the age of five and having developed an affinity for American jazz, studied in France and performed various events across Europe.

Their music that evening was a blend of different genres from jazz to rock, hip-hop to classical. What made the performance special was the palpable synergy of the group and the obvious camaraderie they shared. The music occasionally rumbled and exploded but was also marked by long tonal jazz sections which was pleasing and interesting. “It is the improvisation and passion that each musician brings to his performance makes jazz seem dynamic, new and fresh each time he plays,” said Peter Rosario, a long time jazz enthusiast.

Playing a mix of compositions that were original as well as classic, the trio enthralled the audience who was rivetted by the short but exquisite performance. “I personally thought that the whole concert was a delight. The playing was technically very demanding and the three fused their diverse talents together brilliantly. On the whole there was a bringing together of classic elements  of jazz and rock and a clever fusing of different musical styles such as strong classical jazz standards with improvisations over complex chords and time signatures,” said Sara Perlucci, another jazz lover. The trio featured great tone and instrumental virtuosity taking the crowd on a jazz trip back in time with modern nuances and unique touches of their personal styles all part of the evenings performance.
