Amsterdam Blue Note
Conservatorium van Amsterdam
In the seminars on 28 and 29 November, Dr. Mysore Manjunath (violin) and B.C. Manjunath (percussion) will explain key principles of Karnatic music as well as concepts, phrases and talas that they will use in their concert on the 29 November. They will also propose practical exercises for the students.
The first part of the double-bill concert features pieces of the programme Contemporary music through non-western techniques, created and performed by students. In the second part the two Karnatic musicians perform new pieces using constant crossing accents, polyrhythms and polypulses. Unusual and complex talas will be the trademark of the concert.
