Improvised Music Company - IMCD 1018

This performance brings together some of Ireland's leading jazz and traditional musicians with these Indian masters, forging a dynamic language that transcends language and borders. Drawing on the melodic strength of Irish music, the rhythmic character of its Indian counterpart and embracing the improvisational instinct of jazz, this proves to be an exhilarating musical dialogue, climaxing in a performance of 5 Cities, a collaborative piece written by the musicians while on tour in India.
