Snake Music Chapter III - Unique instrumental acoustic guitar/tabla duets, influenced by Indian Classical music.
There are certain CDs which you can't let just run while you are doing something else (eating, working at the computer, washing up ... or whatever). They demand high degrees of concentration and receptiveness, which if practised, reward you with and intense and very satisfying musical experience.
Such is the case with the new solo CD by the great Indian / British guitarist Rajan Spolia.
The recording shows an honest directness, leading the listener into new worlds, exploring the possibilities of the acoustic guitar within the framework of Indian music, while extending both into a new uncharted realm.
Spolia's virtuosity is never just for show, if at all he understates at first, showing great maturity and control of his musical domain, only then to unleash a flurry of notes worthy of any guitar hero!
Switch off the tv and computer, sit back and treat yourself to a wonderful musical experience.
(Ian Melrose - guitarist, composer, arranger, producer)
