Mumbai: Music is soulful and has healing power. It is not just a treat to the ears but a gift to mankind, for it can travel beyond borders, break barriers and unite one and all. Life Is Music is a musical initiative that brings provides a platform for lovers of this beautiful art to listen to music that’s never heard before.
Sitar player Purbayan Chatterjee, is one such genius among many other legendary musicians who are associated with Life Is Music team.
The Life Is Music family is growing and the maestros are leaving no room for anything less than genius. Pace Of Mind is a composition by Chatterjee that’s loosely-based on the raag Jog. For the uninitiated, Jog is a Hindustani Classical raag that belongs to Khamaj thaat. For every one, however, it is a celebration to the ears.
The song may have a warm familiarity; this is because it is one of the most-widely used raagas in popular film music. What the piece was before Mr. Louiz Banks stepped into the room though, we will never know. He infuses a Blues feel that Purbayan Chatterjee is only too thrilled to welcome into his composition. Our maestros, Pianist Louiz Banks, Percussion master Taufiq Qureshi and Sitarist Purbayan Chatterjee are joined by the delightful Mohini Dey on Bass, Gino Banks on Drums and Bhushan Parchure on Tabla.
