Alliance Française of Hyderabad brings to India an exquisite Jazz Trio, comprising musicians of Asian origin living in France.
Guitarist Nguyen Le, born in Paris to Vietnamese parents, embodies the exotic multi-cultural mosaic fuelling the vibrant jazz and world music scenes in the French capital. “Saiyuki” (meaning “Journey to the West” in Japanese) his latest CD, draws on Asia with no borders, from Vietnam to India through Japan. Prabhu Edouard is one of the few Tabla specialists in Europe, born in TRichy and who lives in France. Mieko Miyazaki from Japan, started playing the koto at the age of nine. She has also performed for the Emperor & the Empress of Japan.
“WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE SOMETIMES YOU GET SOMETHING UNUSUALLY MAGICAL. AND GUESS WHAT? SAIYUKI IS SUCH MAGIC.This is a absolutely fantastically original album. This is hitting the crossover world/spiritual jazz in all the right places. This is a truly ‘joyful encounter’.” Gerry Hectic, Fly Global Music
