Nunataq Meets Konnakol - Fête de la Musique 2021
Jun 21, 2022

In this exciting collaboration between French and Indian musicians, we hear a collaborative tune composed by Alexandre Herer, specially commissioned by The Embassy of France in India, Institut Français in India and Alliance Française network in India. Celebrating the true spirit of Fete De La Musique 2022, this composition is a remarkable display of collaborative potential between French and Indian artistry. The song features progressive and experimental French jazz outfit, Nunataq, and B.C. Manjunath, a Mridangam artist and purveyor of "Konnakol" - the art of performing percussion syllables vocally in South Indian Carnatic music. B.C. Manjunath : Konnakol, Mridangam Alexandre Herer : fender rhodes Gaël Petrina : electric bass Pierre Mangeard : drums Additional music : Nunataq (composed by Alexandre Herer)
