Love for Bijayashree’s Nandighosha Group and ‘Tarana’

Bijayashree Samal et Nandighosha

Si sa formation et celle d’une chanteuse classique indienne, Bijayashree Samal a été
appelée par les hasards de la vie à partager son talent et son patrimoine musical avec
une bande de jazzmen suisses. Rencontre a priori improbable, et pourtant, la magie
opère, entre les compositions inspirées de la chanteuse et les arrangements savamment
ciselés par Bruno Steffen, Eckehard Sassenhausen et leurs complices du groupe
Nandighosha. Le piano de Bruno enrobe les volutes vocales de Bijayashree d’harmonies
sublimes ; le saxophone d’Eckehard se substitue à la flûte enchantée du dieu Krishna, les
timbres de la batterie et des tablas s’entremêlent dans une savante métrique : une
musique à la fois subtile, épicée, inspirée, mais qui swingue diablement !

Music of Nandighosha Group

In November 2018, Nandighosha played at opening of the 4th India week in Liechtenstein

organized by India Club in Liechtenstein e.V. Nandighosha Group’s music is original, melodious and a unique blend of Indian classical and western jazz. The audience was completely enthralled by the energy of the group and originality of the compositions and was left wanting for more. I am very pleased to hear that Nandighosha is about to release its first album/CD of original compositions by UNIT Records, Switzerland in Dec 2019. We wish the band a lot of success.
