IJIMP CD Launch – Soul of Benares

IJIMP is a duo featuring Carl Rathus on shakuhachi and Ravikesh Singh on tabla. The compositions that IJIMP perform are based around Japanese folk songs and Indian ragas.

Soul of Benares was recently recorded in India in collaboration with Anand Mishra on sitar, Shantawana Mishra on vocals and Shibu Mishra on sarangi. The music was created and directed by the great tabla Maestro Pt. Ishwar Lal Mishra who has performed and collaborated on many projects with Late Pt. Ravi Shankar, Late Ustad Aliakbar Khan, Late Pt.Nikhil Benerjee, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan and Ustad Rais Khan.

Alongside Carl and Ravikesh, this special concert will feature local musicians Sudha Manian on sitar, Takako Nishibori Haggarty on koto, Cieavash Arean on Middle Eastern instruments, Komal Gill on vocals and dancer Darshana Hingu. This collaboration of artists will bring their unique musical heritage in reflecting the beauty of the music of the album, leading to a magical fusion of Indian, Japanese and Persian influences never to be repeated.
