Lunchtime Pop-up Jazz

Jyotsna Srikanth

A free, informal pop-up Indo jazz-fusion session in the Amphitheatre, SIWB this Friday (20 November) noon-2.00pm.

Jazz at RGU has an international flavour this week with Jyotsna Srikanth’s Bangalore Dreams . Jazz has long had a connection with India and cross-over could have been invented for one of the world’s most sought-after virtuosos of the Indian violin. Not only is Jyotsna Srikanth the queen of Carnatic music from Southern India, she is a leading exponent of Indian jazz and experimental music.

Jyotsna combines a deep understanding of traditional music with jazz and a contemporary touch, captivating audiences across the globe.

This latest Indo jazz-fusion combines Jyotsna’s violin with NS Manjunath on ethnic percussion and Carnatic beatboxing and keyboard master Shadrach Solomon.

Playing at the Blue Lamp on Thursday why not see them for free here at RGU.

Come along and bring your lunch.

Pop-up lunchtime jazz is part of ‘Open House’ 2015, brought to you by the Cultural Animateur-in-Residence.
