Strip away the surface features and jazz, electronica, Scottish traditional music and Indian classical music all share:
- groove & rhythm,
- collective and individual improvisation,
- melodies and scales/raags,
- vocal rhythmic patterns.
This new project by Tom Bancroft starts with the bodhran and the tabla and a drone,
adds Indian Classical Violin and improvising jazz guitar,
and continues adding layers and voices from different traditions,
in a creative new project that focuses on the common ground
between Scottish music, jazz, Indian music and electronica.
