  • Description

    For the album Wah Wah!, the international ensemble JISR collaborated with the virtuoso vocalist of the Carnatic vocal tradition Ramamani R.A. and the German guitarist and oud player Roman Bunka to create an intercontinental opus magnum.The work is the result of an extensive tour in South Asia, during which JISR explored the music of the Indian subcontinent.A considerable wealth of musical styles meet and converge here, inspired from diverse Indian musical traditions, Gnawa music from Morocco, Arabic Maqam, German Jazz-Rock and more.

    In an unconventional instrumentation, the collective experiments congenially on the highest artistic level in search of a homogeneous musical synthesis. With original compositions and traditional works, the musicians launch a unique attempt at interweaving the trance rhythms of South India and Morocco, wrapped in unifying melodic ornaments and familiar intuitive improvisation. Grounded, modern, groovy and immensely engaging. Musical wanderings - a relevant concern that the album Wah Wah! puts out into the world as a matter of course.
