Joey Alexander, an 11-year-old jazz sensation on piano, was discovered in Jakarta, Indonesia, about three years ago. He then moved with his parents to New York, where he’s become a well known name in the jazz scene. Now the jazzpiano prodigy has just released his debut album ‘My Favorite Things’.
Britain’s eminent raga musician Roopa Panesar is one of my favourite sitar players. Her superb rendition here of a famous Dhun in raag Bhairavi – marvellously accompanied by Bhupinder Chaggar on tabla – is a complete delight for the listener.
Deep musical knowledge, a great feel for beauty, virtuosity and an enormous amount of passion and joy comes across in her style of playing.
