    Tigramuna at Moksh in Kathmandu – Viva la Musica!

    Spring 2010

    “I don’t know but I’ve been told, music makes you lose control!”

    Have you ever wondered why and how music becomes such a potent force in our lives? (What can one say? It’s music!!) The Tigramuna is a contemporary ensemble that pulls in influences and instruments from the Incas of South America to the Jazz Classics with perfect rhythm and tempo. Surprised? I was completely enthralled. (Now, that's what I call music, I thought to myself.)

    The Tigramuna comprises of the following band members:

    Carlos Villanueva (Musical Director, Composer, Guitar, Vocals)

    Wendy Upjohn (Manager, Percussion, Charango)

    Nick Bowd (Saxophone)

    Peter Firth (Bass)

    Daniel Rojas (Keyboards)

    Having spent most of my life listening to a ‘crazy’ mix of musicians and music genres, I had not imagined, even for a second, that I would be enjoying, right up close and personal, a fusion of Latin Jazz, Salsa, Merengue and Traditional/Indigenous music quite like the Tigramuna. The Band played at the Moksh Auditorium last Saturday with amazing virtuosity and to great aplomb.

    The first part of their concert comprised a workshop during which they introduced indigenous music forms and instruments from Latin America in an astounding complement to the re-discovery and revival of ancient music forms currently gaining currency in serious musicology circles.

    It was a rare treat to see that our own bamboo 'bansuri' was among this prisma...
