Claudia Aurora as a special guest of These New Puritans

Here’s some footage of one of the songs where Claudia Aurora participated as a special guest of These New Puritans, at Heaven (London) on 18th May 2011… she only met the group on the day of the show and only rehearsed the song five minutes on the soundcheck… everyone loved it though…

Just in case you are not aware of who These New Puritans are, I will just tell you that their album “Hidden” was crowned NME’s Album Of The Year in 2010. The band saw off competition from Arcade Fire and Beach House to win the honour, voted for by NME writers.

Terry Riley, Talvin Singh and George Brooks European Tour

Asian Music Circuit in association with Red Orange presents




California Kirana – The West Coast Legacy of Pran Nath


Terry Riley has been away from Europe for many years, and this is his 75th Birthday. Red Orange and the Asian Music Circuit are honoured to tour the world famous Terry Riley as he performs Indian ragas with arrangements on the saxophone played by the ever progressive saxophonist George Brooks and Mercury Music awarded tabla player Talvin Singh. Solos from each artist as well.

Music, like all living beings, must evolve to keep pace with a changing environment. The ancient arts of India struggle for survival in a world moving at an every increasing speed. Technology and desire for wealth move us forward and leave little time for the reflection and introspection necessary to evolve the high art known as raga.

Pran Nath’s music was rooted in the masters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As a young man he survived a harrowing journey during partition from Lahore to the new nation of India and later to the US where his most dedicated students absorbed his teachings and continue to reflect on them in deeply personal forms of artistic expression. Pran Nath took the ancient traditions of fierce dedication to craft and guru and handed them to a new generation of American disciples.

Terry Riley, George Brooks and Talvin Singh will perform traditional ragas arranged for piano, voice, saxophone and percussion, focusing on some of Pran Nath’s favorite ragas from the Kirana tradition such as Darbari, Bageshri, Malkauns, Yemen and Bhimpolasi. In addition they will perform works from their duo repertoire including movements from “Salome Dances for Peace” and “Ebony Horns”. Each artist will also perform a solo work.

Tungijuq nominated for an award

Tanya Tagaq’s short film, Tungijuq, produced by Isuma Productions, with music by Tanya Tagaq and Jesse Zubot, filmed by Felix Lajeunesse and Paul Raphael, has been nominated for Best Multimedia at the Western Canada Music Awards. The winner will be announced at the Break Out West Conference, Kelowna, BC October 21 – 24.

Tungijuq is more of a short film than a music video. It is a thought-provoking meditation on the seal-hunt and what it means to the traditional way of life. Tanya created the mystical, form-shifting fantasy and filmmakers Félix Lajeunesse and Paul Raphael brought the idea to life. Jesse Zubot and producer Juan Hernandez joined Tanya to create the music and the seven minute film includes an appearance by Cannes-winning actor Zacharias Kunuk. Tungijuq is a cinematic and musical expression of the organic and indisputable reality of hunting in Inuit culture. The work was produced by Kunuk Cohn Productions and Igloolik Isuma Productions.
