On his first visit to India,jazz guitarist and composer Rory Stuart is looking forward to jamming with Indian musicians on jazz harmonies and rhythms. Stuart performed at the American Center yesterday and will perform at Smoke House Grill on July 19. Ive always wanted to come to India and explore the music scene here, said New York-based Stuart who is fairly well versed in Indian classical music,with a preference for south Indian instruments like the mridangam. Stuart plans to integrate these sounds with modern rhythm and in his jazz workshop held in Delhi on Thursday he talked about his plans. Smart improvisation will be a big part of jazz in the future, said Stuart,during a demonstration where he was backed by three enthusiastic Delhi musicians on the bass,piano and drums. Look out for the beats of the mridangam next.
