A harmonious meeting of seemingly opposites, a meeting of east and west, ancient and modern, melody and harmony, Taan is an indo-world fusion group composed by Rushi Vakil, son of Pandit Divyang Vakil. Each track is different from the rest. In one, you find Irish fiddling with Goan folk, while another compares jazz with the classical raga of Bhairavi. There are club beats overlaid with tabla vocals and a Ugandan folk song recreated with Indian improvisation techniques. Appealing to today’s generation and the connoisseurs of music, Taan has audiences snapping their fingers, dancing to the beat and swaying to its sound.
Taan features Rushi Vakil on the keyboard and tabla, Aniket Khandekar on vocals, Kaumil Shah on the djembe and dumbek and Sahil Patel on tabla and percussion. Guest artists include Steven Francis on bass guitar and Suresh Bhadricha on drums.
