BARMER BOYS (IN)

Thursday 03.07.14 - 20:00 - Gloria

The music of North India and Sufi mysticism is blended together to great effect by Barmer Boys.

Mangey Khan is the leader of the group and his strong vocals sit like a resounding crown on the foundation of jazzy, modulating harmonium scales, syncopated percussion and something that could be mistaken for a jaw harp.

The music is virtuoso, played seated and very much by hand. It works on a radically different frequency than any Western music tradition, and does so with artisan refinement, an awareness of tradition and loving precision.
