A french TV report about Ujjaya the ethno ambient french-malagasy artist. His very source of inspiration is yoga.So yoga practitioners should have a peculiar feel with this music. Ujjaya mean victory. Concert images courtesy by André Rapinat.
The ethno ambient musician with malagasy roots meets Patrick Parola , a french multi instrumentalist who lives in Mexico.He is a guitar virtuoso , and he plays flute and sings in a very shamanic pre hispanic style (amongst others).Most of all, the two musicians are bond by the love of indian spirituality and both are shaping the sound. Patrick studies at the CMMAS , the equivalent in France would be the IRCAM.
He really gives a touch of virtuosity that enhances the natural magnetism of Ujjaya's music.
Ujjaya is a poly instrumentalist playing in the Ethno Ambient genre.This french-malagsy musician play mostly veena , the most ancient hindu string instrument , that he mix with experimental/drone music.His music is influenced by shamanism and hinduism.
Tuu was the finest and the deepest ethno-ambient band in the 90's. This english group was led by Martin Franklin and the mystical atmosphere heavily influenced by hinduism and buddhism influenced a lot the music of Ujjaya.
This playlist is a tribute to their musical excellency.
Jorge Reyes was a mexican ethno-ambient musician.His live set was powerfull, full of mystical tension coming from the shamanical and prehispanic elements.Stunning is the word, as this video can
only give a glimpse of what 's happens on the stage.
Acoustic guitar by UJJAYA.As my playing is influenced by WILLIAM ACKERMAN, so you can call it NEW AGE. It's mere INSRUMENTAL music in the way of STEFAN MICUS.I would like to reach the ECM quality sound like RALPH TOWNER , PAT METHENY or JOHN ABERCROMBIE.
