‘NANDIGHOSHA’, is an Indian Spiced Jazz/ World Music Group, founded by Bijayashree & Bruno in 2017. The name ‘NANDIGHOSHA’ means ‘Joy of Music’ rightly signifying the group’s interest and effort to produce and create music for the global audience meaning audience beyond borders by combining different world music genres. The name has also connection with Bijayashree’s native place Odisha, one of the eastern states of India, where people worship Lord Jagannath of Puri and his chariot name is Nandighosha. Bijayashree believes the annual festival of Lord Jagannath’s Ratha Jatra / Chariot Festival in Puri in which the deities come out of their temple so that everybody across the world beyond cast, creed and religion can see them is a festival signifying universal brotherhood, unity & integrity through embracing humanity and love beyond everything else. Currently, ‘NANDIGHOSHA’ is working on Indian compositions (involving originals as well as traditional) in connection with western harmonic music to infuse colors of jazz music on Indian melodies and vice-versa wherein all original compositions are by Bijayashree Samal or Bruno Steffen.
