Maru Tarang Australian Tour
By invitation of the RIFF Festival, Australian artists Jeff Lang & Bobby Singh traveled deep into the deserts of Rajasthan to meet Asin Langa & Bhungar Manginyar. A remarkable collaboration commenced which would span genres, continents and styles, titled Maru Tarang, by Divya Bhatia who initiated the project.
With this virtuosic musical conversation we are treated to ancient Rajasthani folk songs refreshed with new flavours via Australian roots, seminal blues by Robert Johnson enriched by Indian flavours; soulful expressions through deep, original and fiery improvisations and compositions…
These artists have developed their music to be all they need to converse, sans a common language… and the conversation is stunningly eloquent.
Their debut album is available for sale instores, online and most conveniently at: www.marutarang.com
