A unique Jazz orchestra performance enthralled the audience of Chandigarh city as the band played an exceptional blend of Indian Classical mixed with the western Jazz.
The Fusion orchestra called the 'New Jungle Band' was organised by the Royal Danish Embassy along with Indian Council for Cultural Relations in Chandigarh's Tagore Theatre on Wednesday.
The band became unique as it gave a melodious touch of the acoustic traditional Indian flute, which sank beautifully with other electronic instruments enhancing the rhythms.
Pierre Dorge, performer in the band, was pleased at witnessing the degree of appreciation from the crowd and described music as a language without any boundaries of religions and territories.
"The music is the language and we are really communicating and talking in the language. And it's really cultural meeting that hopefully will get cultures and people closer together in the future." said Dorge.
The band focused on the natural sounds from the surroundings, mostly the Jungle and various fascinating sounds produced by animals. This is one of the reasons why this fusion band was called New Jungle Orchestra.
Shashank Subramanyam was the only Indian artist in the band who played flute and enriched the music with its harmonious tune.
