Jazz, it is said, is the only music in which the same note can be played day after day but differently each time – because it comes from the soul. Realizing the variety it presents, Alliance Française de Delhi and Kalasetu are presenting Jazz-Express: Paris-Darjeeling-Chennai, a subtle jazz duet, in conversation with a guitar sensation – under the umbrella of In[Chorus] - Season 2. The musical extravaganza on April 12, from 6.30 pm, will be presented at the ML Bhartia Auditorium at the Alliance Française de Delhi.
This [InChorus] creation will bring together three jazz exponents: the French singer – Raphaëlle Brochet, the Belgian double bass player – Philippe Aerts, and the Indian guitar player – Pranai Gurung. Raphaëlle's deep immersion in Carnatic music for 15 years gives her voice and repertoire a unique touch that Philippe embraces beautifully with his impressive technique.
The collaboration with Pranai Gurung, one of the top Indian guitar player of Delhi, is expected to turn into a unique fusion of colours, music and virtuosity. Apart from being a brilliant Jazz exponent, Pranai is revisiting the Nepali folk heritage of his area of origin, Darjeeling.
In[Chorus] is a cycle of musical meetings organized by the Alliance Française de Delhi and the Kalasetu organization for the promotion of South Asian Traditional Performing Arts and exchanges between Indian and French artists. It offers a platform for creation dedicated to young promising musicians, of all genres, settled in India and France through residencies, concerts and workshops.
