Demian Kappenstein/Matthias Kurth/Mahaphon Clang/Ramesh Shotham: Mela Thing

Album Remarks & Appraisals:

This CD is a documentation of Mahaphon Clang's 2014 tour to India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Although the whole tour lasted only 16 days, the band managed to travel through six cities, criss-crossing the subcontinent playing half a dozen concerts and spending three days at the Clementine Studio in Chennai. The music heard on this album is a culmination of all that occurred during the tour. The studio sessions were impulsive and spontaneous, and recorded live. For me, a 'been there done that' kind of musician, the Mahaphon Clang sessions were an eye-opener; a fantastically fresh approach to creating and recording music. Bhangra grooves, rhythmic patterns based on South Indian concepts, fretless guitar licks, bass clarinet lines passing through an octave divider, vocal distortion using megaphones, all interspersed with acoustic drums, cajon, tavil, kanjira and konakol combine to create a brand of music which finally embraces all genres! -- Ramesh Shotham
