NANDIGHOSHA GROUP

NANDIGHOSHA is a newly formed Indian Spiced Jazz and World Music Group by Hindustani classical vocalist, song writer and composer Bijayashree Samal; Bruno Steffen, a well- known Jazz pianist, composer, arranger and music teacher of Conservatory of Zurich (MKZ) and at the ZHdK; and Ekkehard Sassenhausen, well known classical and Jazz saxophonist, composer, teacher and principal of Musikschule Uster Greifensee, Switzerland.
The name ‘NANDIGHOSHA’ means ‘Joy of Music’ rightly signifying the group’s interest and effort to produce and create music for the global audience meaning audience beyond borders by combining different world music genres. The name has also connection with Bijayashree’s native place Odisha, one of the eastern states of India, where people worship Lord Jagannath of Puri and his chariot name is Nandighosha. Bijayashree believes the annual festival of Lord Jagannath’s Ratha Jatra / Chariot Festival in Puri in which the deities come out of their temple so that everybody across the world beyond cast, creed and religion can see them is a festival signifying universal brotherhood, unity & integrity through embracing humanity and love beyond everything else.

Currently, NANDIGHOSHA Group is working on Indian compositions (involving originals as well as traditional) in connection with western harmonic music to infuse colors of jazz music on Indian melodies and vice-versa wherein all original compositions are by Bijayashree Samal and Bruno Steffen.

The first original  single ‘RASIKA BALAMA’ by NANDIGHOSHA Group has  released recently on YouTube. Please check this place or subscribe  to our You Tube Channel to listen to all our original creations.
