Miles from India

Darryl Jones of the Rolling Stones and Selvaganesh of Remember Shakti add their talents.
Miles goes Indian… or vice-versa? The Festival presents another concert homage to the legend, this time with a major musical project spiced with a delicious touch of exoticism. Inspired by the double album of the same name, Miles from India is a musical fusion of Indian and American cultures. Two groups, one composed of elite Indian musicians, the other of American jazzmen who’ve previously collaborated with Miles, unite onstage for a Subcontinental, spiritual celebration of the master’s music. A remarkable project in its exclusive Canadian presentation!

Caroline Johnson
Caroline Johnson (Festival International de Jazz de Montréal)
A musical tribute to the master, Miles Davis, with Nicholas Payton, Bill Evans, Lenny White and several great Indian musicians, including Rudresh Mahanthappa.
André Ménard
André Ménard (Festival International de Jazz de Montréal)
A musical fantasy world created by director Bob Belden, this project assembles members from several of Miles’ former groups with some of the finest Indian classical musicians of our time, including members of Shakti. Bridging these two worlds is tabla player Badal Roy, who participated in the live and studio sessions that would become "Bitches Brew" and "Live-Evil". Just looking over the extensive list of musicians and instruments gives me a thrill. Needless to say, I’m very, very excited.
