Just a quick post... Just got back from an interesting night. Something I wouldn't have done if I was not invited... well, was never really into any cultural/ethnic dance.
Xiaoyao performed at Victoria Theatre earlier tonight. I was very impressed by his indian dance performance! didn't know he could move like that :p I was pleasantly surprised i enjoyed myself. Have always liked indian music... i don't know why, maybe some of them just sounded so sad and heart wrenching (though i don't understand a word)... I am so inspired tonight, I have decided to post two music vids of one of my all time fave musicians, Nitin Sawhney.
He's a London based musician/composer who fused his indian classical training with jazz, drum 'n' bass, hip hop elements to stunning results. His music is intensely political, commonly approaching themes of identity, immigration, empowerment, multiculturalism, poverty and spirituality. Check out these two vids, one is a music video and another a live performance, enjoy! :
