Three really nice videos I found on Youtube of Susheela Raman, Aref Durvesh and Kumar Raghunathan performing at OUTERINDIA
OUTERINDIA – a platform created to promote the best in all genres of music related to South Asia. Starting with live events, it is also intended to establish a much-needed curated internet resource for all South Asian Music.
Performances by – Susheela Raman, Aref Durvesh,Kumar Raghunathan, Kartik Raghunathan, Taalis Drums, Sam Mills with special guests SHRI and JC001.
“Susheela Raman is that rarity: a true innovator.”
As one of the leading artists and pre-eminent vocalists to emerge from the Asian Diaspora builds towards the releasing of a new album, here’s a rare unreleased five track EP to download for free!!
The EP also consists of Waiting in Vain – A fantastic rendition of Bob Marley‘s Waiting in Vain collaborated with Karsh Kale.
The new album’s main references are based on ancient Tamil religions and culture, marginalised and downplayed by the mainstream culture in India and an intense sort of rough post-punk sound with added Indian violin, played with passionate verve by Kumar Raghunathan and masterful percussion by long-time collaborator, tabla guru Aref Durvesh.
