BIBI TANGA with Thakita
Monday, 26th March, 7 PM
Mazda Hall, Dastur Primary School, Camp
Bibitanga a singer/producer from Paris was looking to incorporate Indian folk and tribal style music into his upcoming production. He discussed the idea with Mr. François Grosjean the director of Alliance Francaise Trivandrum. Francois Grosjean introduced BibiTanga to John Anthony a veteran guitarist/producer and the founder of the band Karnatriix. The three of them discussedthe possibilities of collaboration over phone and knew instantly the possibilities of a new genre. Bibi flew to India to meet John Anthony with the idea of composing a couple of songs together. To add a flavor of rhythm and groove, John Anthony regrouped with his long time friend Sunil kumar a percussionist/singer for this production. Rahul a bassist/flutist/DJ was also finding a place in the composing sessions. Together the three of them formed the band thakita (three syllables of Indian rhythm denoting the three members of the band). In a week’s time they ended up arranging five songs with a blend of Central African Sangho and Indian Malayalam folk. They even managed to finish recording the rough tracks.
