The Yoginis Indian Jazz Project,Sunday August 31 2014 05:30 pm – 07:00 pm
The Yoginis Indian Jazz Project delivers exciting, fresh sounds fusing Indian Classical, American Jazz, Brazilian Samba, Afro-Cuban and Caribbean rhythms. They explore new territory while respecting their roots. The songs are truly collaborative compositions of Yogi, Vishal, and singer Ujwal Nagar (who is also lead vocalist for the acclaimed Indian rock band Advaita).
Founded by Pianist Yogi McCaw and Tablas Maestro Vishal Nagar, The Yoginis Indian Jazz project has performed in India as well as the USA, and are recording a new album this year. They are Jack Straw Artist Support recipients, and have been featured in the Times of India, the Indian Express and on the Jazz Network Worldwide. Their music has appeared in the acclaimed film Dalai Lama Renaissance featuring His Holiness, and they have won top 10 placement in the WOMEX International Songwriting contest.
CD Baby Founder Derek Sivers says "Yogi McCaw is the Best", and DamnGood Tunes music magazine editor Bruce Maier says ""In my forty-plus years in the industry I have never witnessed an unsigned Indie act of this caliber." Jaijai Jackson, Creator of The Jazz Network Worldwide says "your music is very innovative, it causes one to ‘really listen’ to what’s going on and get a full understanding of how the two cultures fuse together."
