“SANGAM an interplanetary blend of rhythm, roots and rebellion. Founder member, composer and arranger, Milan, has brought together a rich and diverse ensemble of musicians to produce a project oozing with style and attitude. This is fusion at its most supreme, knowing no boundaries or limits and exploring the realms of jazz, pop, funk, street, and chic, to give a melange of world music that can sit up there with the best.”
“Weaving a mix of old and new, classical and contemporary, Sangam is a showcase of raw musical talent pulled together with the smoothness of jazz funk. The project features artists such as Inder “Goldfinger” on percussion, who uses the language of the Tabla with its expressive and dynamic range to create intricate and delicate patterns alongside the phat, funky, yet fluid bass playing of Sylvan Richardson Jnr. Other notable musicians include Tim Garland on saxaphones, a powerful presence with award winning credentials; Mark Mondesir, rock solid yet continually inventive on drums, and Gary Husband, multi-talented collaborator from jazz orchestra to pop, on keyboards and synths. Extra street cred is added with multimedia, international Indian-Canadian visionary DJ Dervesh on turntables and samplers. The final layer on this rich, edible and mouth-watering cake is the understated yet distinctive and inventive floating guitar of Milan Lad. In all, a sonic, audio experience of globe-shattering proportions. Miss it at your peril!”
So says R. Rajwadi, and I agree. At any rate they wanted a website doing, and while the site is in need of a fresh look and overhaul, the sample tracks provided (playable with the Macromedia Flash player) are simply marvellous.
