Goa based record label Rock and Raaga has released the Brown Indian Band's debut album titled E-Fusion.

The Brown Indian Band led by bassplayer Colin D'Cruz, features accomplished Indian classical musicians in concert with jazz virtuosos. Indian classical music and jazz are both forms of improvised music. Indian classical music is linear and improvisation is based on just one raga (scale). Jazz on the other hand has a broader palette where multiple scales are often used to improvise through harmonic changes. Indian classical music is known to be very meloncholic, whereas jazz can be extremely exuberant. Indian classical music however has subtle quarter tones and complex rhythm structures that add a whole new dimension to jazz. The Brown Indian Band's E-Fusion is a seamless blend of two different approaches to musical improvisation. The album is produced by Colin D'Cruz and the title has nothing to do with the times we live in. It is called E-Fusion simply because all the tracks in the album are performed in the key of E.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
