Sandy Evans' Indian Project Live at Adelaide's OzAsia Festival Part 2

Friday 28 June 2013 8:05PM

Sandy Evans� Indian Project brings together musicians from two very different musical traditions. The music they play draws on ideas from Carnatic music, Hindustani music and jazz. In Sandy�s words �In many ways our vocabularies differ. However, a love of rhythmic vibrancy; subtle and ecstatic moods; and the spontaneity of improvised music unites us".

Sandy Evans performed alongside tabla player Maharshi Raval, sitar player and vocalist Sarangan Sriranganathan, and double bass player Brett Hirst at the Adelaide Festival Centre�s OzAsia Festival in September 2012, and The Live Set was there to catch the performance.


Recorded and mixed by Andrea Hensing.
