MELA (‘festival’ in Hindi) merges a foreground of Hindustani classical melodies and instrumentation, with a background of dance floor beats.
A collaboration between two composers from very different musical backgrounds. Chinmaya Dunster and DJ/Producer Ben Fordham (Dubtouch) combining live elements of Chinmaya’s music with musicians from around the world and electronica. The message in MELA’s music? ‘Trance Your Way to God’
‘WEDDING IN KOTREE’ First track from the upcoming album.
The film is a tribute to India’s adivasi (indigenous) peoples, using historical footage when their culture was still intact and dance an integral part of their lives.
