Tulika presents new Indian pop album Tattva
The songs that I have written and composed have basically an Indian soul and belong to the category Indian-World Pop. My Indian universe came across many other influences. While working in recording studios, in the concert halls or during rehearsals, I met exceptional Indian and Western musicians from different horizons, particularly Denis Teste, Alex Stuart and Nicolas Dri with whom I co-write the arrangements of my original repertory. A multicultural alchemy then got created blending a cross-bred musical world around texts in Hindi, French and English.
Some of our Pop grooves approch the Bollywood ambiance, other nearing the traditional India and we find in these grooves also some colours borrowed from Jazz, Rock or African music...
I chose a double CD format for my album 'TATTVA', elements in English. With quite a contemporary sound, the songs of the album are in line with the Mainstream Pop. This makes the music of "Tattva" accessible to all public.
The songs of the first part "Earth" produced and directed by the pianist Nicolas Dri talk about the Earth, humanity, nature, ecology...
We are working on the production of the 2nd part "Ether" in collaboration with the Sitar player Denis Teste. The songs of this part talk about mythology, the hereafter, far-off lands, the unexplainable ...
I am an Indian singer, author and composer. I am working on my first album "Tattva" in two parts « Earth », & « Ether ».
The album contains original songs that I have written and composed. All these songs are inspired by my life experiences and travels, in India, in Europe, in different countries... Through my songs I search for answers to questions related to society, altruism, sprirituality, humanity, ecology, mythology or about love... These songs express also my desire to see a world full of love for the others, a world apeased from the violences of now-a-days, and also a desire to bring to my audience a source of energy, hope and delightful journey.The preparation and the recording of this album is an extraordinary musical journey, a dialogue between my two elements,'Earth' and 'Ether'. It integrates two of my biggest inspirations, my life as an Indian Woman singer and artist in Paris and the search of a lifestyle in adequation with the spirituality and the nature.
The fact that I grew up India and then lived my life as an adult in France makes of me a blend of a Modern and Traditional Indian Woman. So one can see in me this love for well-being, nature, spirituality but also having a certain joie de vivre, an energy, a youth, a modernity as well as a freshness. These characteristics have been engraved in the music of the album.
The compositions are of urban inspiration but also marked by the savage extends of the nature, of the spirituality... Important changes dominate our world today to which I oppose the omnipresent and evident beauty surrounding us.
I am accompanied by my very good friends and excellent musicians of the Parisian stages, Denis Teste on Sitar (and direction of the part « Ether »), Alex Stuart on Electric Guitar, Gilles Sonnois on Bass and different Tabla players. The invitees Nicolas Dri on keys (and on the direction of the part « Earth »), M.K.Khan on Tabla and Gaël Larvor on drums and percussions honoured us by their wonderful participation and helped us embellish our recording. These musicans have enormously given their own selves and their art to realise this project. I just could'nt be happier about the result that we have achieved.
Allocation of funds
Today, all the songs have been composed, arranged, recorded and a part of them have their mixing done. But, I still need to spend money for the rest of the mix, mastering, communication, press attachée, graphism, visuals, CD press, promotion, production of the release concert etc. etc. and I'd need your help to finance these last steps of the album.
I am very proud of the musical world that we have created and am certain that our project is unique and I'm eager to share it with you !
