South Asian Classical musicians are normally expected to perform ragas according to the mood they find themselves in. However, zerOclassikal had had a different approach – to commission artists to ready specific rags for performance.
The highly and uniquely talented saxophonist, Jesse Bannister takes on a contemporary view of Ahir Bhairav, which is a mixture of Bhairav and the ancient but now rare raga Ahir.
the zerOclassikal project, a partnership between zeroculture and Collage Arts, continues to offer a radical approach to south Asian classical music, aiming to provide British born and trained musicians the voice and platform to explore what their identity brings to the ‘ancient’ musical genre . The Project facilitates progressions, experiments and developments of the genre, featuring commissions of new ragas, new interpretations, compositions & improvisations.
The Karamel Lounge is proud once again to host the project with a once a month programme featuring artists willing to push the boundaries of south Asian classical music.
