Do you like music that defies genre and blurs boundaries? Local musician Aakash Mittal blends the sounds of India with classic instrumental jazz. That might seem unlikely, but he pulls it off with ease to create a rich and piquant experience for your ears.
Mittal's songs range from shamanic and meditative to bustling and chaotic, combining the undulating melodies of traditional Indian music with your classic groovy coffee shop and lounge jazz.
Today’s heavy metal music shares surprising similarities with the classical music of the past. In Beethoven’s day, his music was thought by some to be distasteful and chaotic; Bach and Vivaldi shocked with their upbeat and technical compositions. How will the future judge musical pioneers of the present?
"Every word ever written will fall short of its intent
Even sung or spoke or screamed they will betray what they have meant
Language is the heart's lament, a weak attempt to circumvent
the loneliness inherent in the search for permanence"
