Arushi Jain: Under the Lilac Sky

Arushi Jain mischt traditionelle indische Musik mit ‘modular synth’s’ und kreiert damit einen völlig uniquen Sound. Treibend, vielschichtig und wunderschön.

Absolut geglücktes Experiment, dass mit jedem Hören neue Facetten offenbart. Das Debut der New Yorkerin mit indischen Wurzeln gehört mit zu den spannendsten Veröffentlichungen, die ich in diesem Jahr bislang gehört habe.

Jain’s work focuses on reinterpreting traditional Indian classical music through the lens of electronic instrumentation. She re-contextualizes ancient sounds in a modern framework, carrying the torch of electronic luminaries such as Suzanne Ciani and Terry Riley while pursuing personal explorations of her musical heritage and upbringing. Under the Lilac Sky is a cinematic statement of intent, an album that reverently nods to Jain’s musical history while presenting a bold sonic point of view. Jain states, “This album is the coming together of two distinct cultures of Hindustani classical and modular synthesizers representing the two parts of me that evolved into one whole in between my time in India and California”
