Gamak

“Absolutely arresting…completely irresistible” (Buffalo News) describes Rudresh Mahanthappa, named Alto Saxophonist of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association in four consecutive years from 2009-2012.  His latest project, Gamak, incorporates Western forms of jazz, progressive rock, heavy metal, country, American folk, go-go and ambient while simultaneously engaging the rich traditions of Indian, Chinese, African and Indonesian music.  The end result is music that defies category, music that very much fits with the times in which we live.

“A landmark convergence of styles that didn’t lend itself to easy analysis…new music of this caliber hasn’t been attempted before.” (JazzTimes)
