The Amstel Quartet's infamous Amstel Raga project with Niti Ranjan-Biswas!
Composers took their inspiration from the classical Indian music and wrote compositions for the programme. Even though Western and Indian music have been combined successfully in the past, the combination of a saxophone quartet and tablas is completely new. As the Indian and Western cultures show great contradictions, the starting point will always be the essence of the music itself. Creativity is what the Amstel Raga programme is all about. Not world music, not classical music; Amstel Raga!
Works by Gopalnath, Wilson, Van Geel, Maessen, Fondse, Von Tilzer, Dijkstra.
