gibt uns in dem StudioTalk Einblicke in die Grundlagen der indischen Rhythmik und vermittelt uns sein Verständnis zur musikalischen Erziehung, zur Klangbildung seiner Hybrid-Instrumente und den in seinen Kompositionen wiederspiegelnden, völkerverbindenden Dialog zwischen Afrika, Indien und der Musik der westlichen Welt (Jazz, Fusion, Klassik).

Kurzbiographie…

Trilok Gurtu

Trilok Gurtu @ IMC OnAir (photo: Richard Stöhr / 2008)

Trilok Gurtu wurde am 30. Oktober 1951 in Mumbai, dem ehemaligen Bombay geboren. Hier besuchte er die katholische Schule, die Don Bosco High School. Trilok entstammt einer Musikerfamilie. Sein Vater war Sitarspieler, von seiner Mutter Shoba Gurtu erhielt Trilok die Grundlagen im Tablaspiel vermittelt.

Der indische Tablamaestro ist als Perkussionist seit den 70er Jahren in den unterschiedlichsten Musikstilen unterwegs… Zu den frühesten Aufnahmen Trilok’s zählt Apo-Calypso, im Jahre 1977 mit der deutschen Ethnic-Fusion-Band Embryo. Im Jahre 1987 veröffentlichte Trilok seine erste Solo-CD Usfret. Den Gesang steuerte Trilok’s Mutter, Shoba Gurtu bei.
Shoba Gurtu (1925-2004) ist in Indien bis heute als Thumri-Queen bekannt. Die herausragende Sängerin der leichten indischen Klassik stand in der Tradition der Jaipur-Atrauli Gharana und des Gesangsvirtuosen und Tablaspielers Ustad Abdul Karim Khan (1872-1937), Vertreter der Kirana Gharana, eine der indischen Musikschulen.

In den 80er Jahren war Trilok Gurtu mit dem englischen JazzRock-Gitarristen John McLaughlin auf Welttournee. Er spielte mit herausragenden Musikern des Jazz, wie den Saxophonisten Jan Garbarek oder Charlie Mariano, dem Afro-Amerikanischen Trompeter Don Cherry oder dem Klangvirtuosen auf den Keyboards, Joe Zawinul (Weather Report).
Um den Bassisten Bill Laswell und Tablavirtuosen Zakir Hussain formierte sich im Jahre 1999 Tabla Beat Science, eine Symbiose aus nordindischer Klassik, Asian Underground, Drum & Bass und elektronischer Musik. Trilok Gurtu spielte hier neben Karsh Kale und Talvin Sing mit Veröffentlichungen von drei Alben bis ins Jahr 2003.

StudioTalks… a deep going insight for Indian Classics…

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on September 1, 2015

Joachim Ernst Behrendt

The special format “StudioTalk” offers to the listeners some very exclusive themes and talks about the world of Indian Classical Music ! – StudioTalk gives Indian music maestros, music scientists, event organisations and other specialists  the chance to present themselfs in a dialogue directly to an international and European audience.

… it will be the consciousness of listening people. No more the eyes – as it is common in our times – will have higher preference to the ears. The hearing, sound will become more important than the visible.
(editorial for “Nadah Brahma” written by Joachim E. Behrendt – journalist/writer/producer)

A StudioTalk isn’t an interview form of 5 to 10 minutes small talk about concert tours, new editorials , CD or DVD projects etc. … Much more by a detailled planning and research work IMC OnAir delivers by StudioTalk a frame for specific themes and aspects to contribute an approach and deep going insight for Indian Classical Music – especially for the Europeans.

Mit dem Format “StudioTalk” bietet IMC OnAir dem interessierten Hörer exklusive Themengespräche aus der Welt zur indisch klassischen Musik ! – Mit den StudioTalks haben indische Musikmeister, Musikwissenschaftler, Event-Organisatoren u.a. die Chance, sich dem europäischen/internationalen Hörer in einem direkten Dialog zu präsentieren.

… bestimmend wird das Bewusstsein von hörenden Menschen sein. Nicht mehr das Sehen, wie es weit verbreitet ist in unserer Zeit. Da Hören wird von größerer Bedeutung sein. Klang wird wichtiger als das Visuelle.
(Vorwort für “Nadah Brahma” – Author: Joachim E. Behrend (Jouranlist/ Schriststeller/Produzent))

StudioTalk ist kein klassisches Interview von 5-10 Minuten “small talk” zu Konzerttourneen, CD/DVD-Neuerscheinungen o.ä. Vielmehr bietet IMC OnAir mit einer aufwendigen Sendeplanung und detaillierten Vorrecherchen den Rahmen für spezielle Themenaspekte, die einen Beitrag zu einem tiefergehenden Verständnis (aus europäischer Sicht) für die indisch klassische Musik leisten sollen.
