CD - Padayatra Live

George Grant -- Tabla, Frame Drums, Percussion



Craig J Green -- Guitar


A New Orleans native, guitarist Craig Green has scored music for stage, film, ballet and string ensembles. A traveler, he has performed in the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe and India, always seeking unique collaborations to inspire composition and improvisation. He has worked with serious composers from Cuba and Spain, drummers from India and Brazil, and many famous jazz musicians, singers, and rock bands.

Aside from one-of-kind projects with classical and jazz masters and modern dance companies, George Grant has performed traditional music with virtuosos from every country in the traditional "Silk Route," including North and South India, Turkey, Iran, Kurdistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, and Mongolia.

So is it fate? After decades of traveling all over the globe, immersed in all kinds of jazz and world music, guitarist Craig Green and percussion-chanter George Grant would end up as neighbors in Idaho of all places.

George and Craig easily found their common ground during several concerts providing live accompaniment for painters at the Eagle Rock Art Museum, where this "live" recording was made. To express the spirit of contemporary improvisation inspired by modern jazz and world music, they started to perform as Padayatra, which means "pilgimage" in Vedic Sanskrit.

Each and every performance is a journey based on total freedom and surprise. One "song" often lasts for forty minutes. Both always in the lead, and always backing each other up; they push each other to new discoveries.
