The "Mini Street Album"
Our first EP!!
Prahl'ad and Jyoshna began to work briefly together in London in 2008, and realised they shared a similar passion for the profound devotional/social songs of the Indian composer/spiritual master Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar. But since then, they only had few opportunities to meet and play together as they lived in different countries.
They now seek to create an intimate, western acoustic interpretation of these songs through their newly formed band:
and together, will embark on this EP called
" Who else will? "
These songs are sung in Bengali and English.
They understand the challenges involved: that of understanding the inner meaning of the Bengali lyrics when their mother tongue is English and French; pronouncing the Bengali properly; practising the songs while residing in different countries, however, they are very committed to this project and want it to succeed.
This EP or Mini Street album is their first endeavour to record and share the sounds of this musical collaboration - a personal interpretation of these beautiful songs - that have been chosen because they resonate with the things they value most, the causes they fight for, and longings for a better, more just world.
They hare also joined with some wonderful experienced musicians to work with them including Kavita Neumannova on Indian khol drum, Erik Azzopardi and Niko Chatalain on piano, Morgan Davies on Indian sarangi, Xavier Grau Cidatma on bass guitar and many others...
To remain consistent with their musical universe, they attach great importance to the sound work that will materialize their artistic sensitivities. That's why they choose to work with the sound engineer LUKE HENDERSON at FLUKEPRODUCTIONS STUDIO in London
They are very excited to begin this new recording, and need your help to make it a reality !!
"Our dream is that these songs will give the listener a sense of empowerment, and inspiration as they do for us, songs that create a new dawn in your heart, where hope lives and devotion thrives".
Below is a demo- video made in London when promoting recording the song "Who else will?". We hope that you'll like it and that it will give you the inspiration to help us in our project....
