Bangalore International Centre had arranged a Saxophone concert titled “Saxophonist Phil Scarff: Innovation in the Indian Classical Tradition” by Mr. Phil Scarff, a Saxophonist from USA on Friday 23rd January, 2015 at 6:30 pm at its auditorium. Accompaniment in Tabla was by Vid. Gurumurthy Vaidya.
Saxophone in Indian Classical Music is not a well-known phenomenon. This unique exposition however is all about the universality of music. Acclaimed USA saxophonist Phil Scarff joined forces with a tabla maestro for an unforgettable concert of Indian classical music of deeply meditative ragas and intricate invigorating rhythms. The improvisation was both soulful and haunting.
It was an evening which everyone would cherish for a long time.
