We continue to look at the impact of Jazz on India and its influence on Indian musicians. By the late 70’s various musicians from the West led by Charlie Mariano and other progressives had established far reaching roots in this genre. “Mahavishnu” John Mclaughlin’s ground breaking work with Shakti is probably the most well known association with Indo Jazz fusion. In these videos we look at the fusing of the jazz culture with Indian music through Indian voices and perspective.
Our thanks to Niranjan Jhaveri and the Jhaveri family for their participation. We are also deeply indebted to Ranjit Barot and Nirvana Studio for his incredible support for this film project.
