Meditative music in the Caracassonne Basilique by the Bamboo and Clay

C’est de ce lieu empli d’histoire Bamboo and Clay Carcassone Basilique 1que nous avons pu tutoyer les vents magiques qui circulent du cosmos à cette pierre si élégamment élancée vers le ciel. Nous ne l’oublierons jamais, cette grace qui nous a offert cet instant est de ces rares cadeaux de la vie. Merci aussi a Atma de son soutien.

From this place we have been able to touch the magical winds that move from cosmos to this elegant stone work propelled to the sky. We ‘ll never forget the divine gift that was to play in this place and I hope to come back there soon.Bamboo and Clay Carcassone Basilique 2Bamboo and Clay Carcassone Basilique 3

Sean Agus Nua presents: BAMBOO AND CLAY: A Celebration of Indian Music.

featuring the music of Fabrice de Graef and Ghatam Giridhar Udupa

Fabrice de Graef is a professional bamboo bansuri flute player one of the very few in the West. In fact, Fabrice is the only Western bansurist to have ever received an Indian government scholarship to study with H. P. Chaurasia and Dr. L. Subramaniam, one of the best masters of our time.

The main focus of Fabrice’s work remains the classical Indian duet format: the music of the bansuri flute and classical Indian percussion instruments as he learned it from his Indian teachers. A traditional Indian raga usually consists of An Taibhdhearctwo parts: first comes the alap, an unaccompanied introduction that embodies the innate meditative traits of Fabrice’s music. Then starts the gat as the percussions join in to expresses openness, virtuosity and freedom to improvise…
and most importantly, the joy with which Fabrice interacts with the other musicians onstage.
At a concert in 2006, Fabrice’s band had to use a gatham instead of a tabla. This happened because the tabla had
not been tuned in time for the show. The magic sound of this impromptu combination gave rise to a concert programme called « Bamboo And Clay ». A series of concerts featuring this program followed, culminating at the 2011 Festival of India in Montpeyroux, where the band was received with a standing ovation.


Ghatam Giridhar Udupa is one of the leading musicians in the world of rhythm. Thumping into the musical world at an IMG_0951age as tender as 4, Udupa has been mesmerizing the audience with his immaculate style and innate creativity. Udupa, a commerce graduate, has treaded the path of music with a heart of an artist and the will of an innovator. His persistence for perfection has taken him to the league of the nation’s most sought after percussionists. He performs on the Ghatam, the Indian claypot. He also performs on varied South Indian percussion instruments including Mridangam, Khanjira and Morsing. He renders Konnakol (syllables) with equal aplomb.


0 Irish Music And Ambulant Carillon Concert



Playing with a 15 tons bells carillon_de_douai_01versus a 150 grams bamboo flute… No panic !! That would be really forbidden in modern world sport regulations, fortunately we did it !! Bansuri Pro in GWind against Iron Age, Art has no borders.

Je n’en reviens pas moi meme d’avoir jouée avec le Carillon de Douai. La difference de poids 15 tonnes contre 150 grammes !! Très beau témoignage du patrimoine du Nord. Merci a Stephano Coletti carillonneur émérite et de passage dans le film « Bienvenu chez les chti » de cette incroyable idée.

Inauguré le 4 juillet 2004 Saint-Louis-01à Douai, ce carillon poursuit la plus belle aventure musicale du monde campanaire, qui affiche un palmarès inégalé à ce jour. Le nouveau carillon ambulant de Douai Région Nord-Pas de Calais a été créé grâce à l’aide de souscripteurs privés, des Ets Bodet, de la région Nord-Pas de Calais et de la Ville de Douai.  J’adore le Geant de Douais en arrire plan… Beau patrimoine du Nord.


Samrasa – Memory of trance Irish Bansuri on applauding audience !!

I wish to share with you this very dear moment we experienced on stage with our World Jazz band « Samrasa ». My two friend and colleagues are both sought after musicians specialized in Jazz … They told me that they usually hear the crowd clapping at the end of solos in this type of music, but they rarely experienced the audience to clap during a solo because of excitement !! Check out what happens here…
Je desire partager avec vous ce très cher moment vécu sur scène avec notre groupe de Jazz du Monde « Samrasa ». Mes deux collègues et amis qui sont deux musiciens très demandés dans le Jazz m’ont dit entendre habituellement dans cette musique le public applaudir a la fin des solos. Mais ils l’ont rarement entendu le faire durant un solo tellement l’excitation est grande !! Voyez ce qui c’est passé la…
