Raga No 1. (Bhimpalasi): Afternoon from “The Book of Ragas” by Charu Suri (raga jazz and Sufi). (Video)

The first combination of a jazz trio with Sufi sounds, “Raga No. 1:Bhimpalasi” is an afternoon raga, borrows from modal scales from India and makes it accessible to a Western audience. A brilliantly performed world music with jazzy influences.

Few words about Charu Suri:
The first Indian American jazz composer to premier work at Carnegie Hall, Charu Suri was born in South India and grew up learning both Carnatic music and ragas, and Western Classical music. She was a concert pianist from a very early age and played everything from Chopin’s Scherzi to Beethoven Sonatas by the time she was 14, and won an international piano competition at 15. In 2018, she formed her own jazz band, and started experimenting with using Indian ragas as the basis for her jazz trio compositions. Her “Book of Ragas” and “New American Songbook” program at Carnegie Hall in Dec. 2019 showed two completely different sounds in jazz, and won two Global Music Awards.

Tania V Jaffa Original Violin Song (Video)

A world music theme driven under violin positive, clearly ethnic melodies and lush grooves that invites you to step up and follow the rythym, instrumental focus with no vocals, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the happy vibes at full and dance.

Few words about Tania Vinokur:
Tania’s main musical inspirations are drawn from Gypsy, Electronic, Pop and Classical music. The subsequent sonic and movement focused creations are enhanced during her live performances. Live shows fully emulate Tania’s triple-threat approach to sharing her artistry with the world portraying her chameleon-like abilities to playing the violin, dance, sing and drum. Her stage presence is therefore simultaneously theatrical and magnetic, transporting audiences to her custom realm of music and movement-driven integration leaving them stunned.

In recent years, Tania has performed globally on European, American, Thai and Cuban stages as well as at various festivals throughout her career. Most recently she has performed at the ADE festival in Holland and appeared on TEDx Jaffa during which she received an ovation for the most original performance at the event. This honor praised her distinct combination of dancing and violin playing which Tania states is “…the most natural thing for her to do.”

Tania Vinokur is soon releasing her new album Dream Again,recorded with the aclaomed producer Yoad Nevo (Sia, Vanessa Mae, Bond) in his London based studios.
