A feast of flutes

Musical delight

A concert by ‘Magic Flutes’ will be held at the Alliance Française de Bangalore on January 17,  7 pm. The concert is free and open for all. 

   The concert will have artistes Ravichandra Kullur on flute, Jean-Luc Thomas on wooden flute and live electronics and Giridhar Udupa and Muthu Kumar on percussions.

Always in search of new artistic horizons, internationally acclaimed musicians, Ravichandra Kulur and Jean-Luc Thomas first met at the TFE Festival of Rudolstadt for the Magic Flute concert creation. With Giridhar Udupa and Muthu Kumar in Bengaluru, the stage is set for magical improvisations.

Self taught flute-player, Jean-Luc Thomas, was among the first generation of musicians to integrate this instrument into festoù- noz groups (traditional Breton dance music). He moves through rich musical environment from traditional to classical via jazz with Breton, Malian, Polish, Brazilian and Arabic musicians and dancers.

Giridhar Udupa ventured into the world of Carnatic music learning all the traditional percussion instruments. Muthu Kumar is a tabla player and percussionist from Bengaluru.
