Dubai, United Arab Emirates
This was supposed to be a journey and not a mad rush to get to a point. But is it a trip if it ain’t reaching a place of consequence? The ride till now took us from looking at things around us to looking within.
Looked around and what did we see?
We caught them one by one and filtered jazz, electronica, Indian classical, rock n’ roll, funk, trance and techno through the looking glass only to splatter the electronica musicscape with a new sound. We just don’t get the variant to do its part- we are the variant that transcends.
The journeymen only added to the fun. Just can’t forget how once a dude just got off an airplane and rapped his way to a gig. Or the time when some got left behind allowing a new possibility. Traveling’s better when you move around with too much that simply can’t be left behind. The acts become more than the usual with sounds that result from the commingling of ideas along with the percussions, electric sitar, guitars and vocals that breathe.
