AT TESÒ WATERFRONT
Come 23rd of December, generic Tesò Waterfront will host another magical evening with multi-instrumentalist and composer Prem Joshua and his Band, patient live in concert. Tesò has been hosting successful concerts with this fusion ensemble since December 2012,with an average of at least two concerts per season.
Prem Joshua and his international band are pioneers in the field of World Fusion Music, and have continued to refine their awesome sound, creating a unique blend beyond the borders of east and west. Indian Classical, Jazz, Funk & Ethno are so playfully intermingled that it now has a truly global appeal. The concert on 23rd of December will also feature a guest artiste, the talented vocalist Mahesh Vinayakram.
Born in Germany, Joshua picked up the flute at the age of five and went on to play the flute and the saxophone for various local bands. Travelling to India via the land route when he turned 18, he observed the folk music of countries along the way. In India, Joshua learned to play the sitar under the tutelage of Ustad Usman Khan and Osho, aka Bhagwan Rajneesh.
Joshua eventually dropped his family name and adopted the name Prem, meaning love in Hindi.
Fusing the sounds of the East and West has been central to Prem Joshua’s musical career. Collaborations with other producers have yielded remixes that are infused with traditional Hindustani acoustic instruments, and yet based on lounge and trance beats.
In 1991, Joshua launched his first project ‘Terra Incognita’ with British sarod player, Chinmaya Dunster and kora player Ravi, which yielded two albums. Four solo albums later he formed the band ‘Hamsafar’, with which he released one album. The next phase saw Joshua experimenting with genres like drum and bass, lounge, and trance, while still remaining based in traditional Hindustani music.
The combination of Joshua’s mesmerising music and the beautiful ambience at Tesò is bound to be a magical gateway to a transcendental state, where listeners can lose themselves to the hypnotic sounds of Prem Joshua and his band.
Tanya Singh Kumar, the proud owner of Tesò Waterfront is also celebrating her birthday on this concert day, giving her a special thrill to experience one of her favourite artists playing live, in the company of her loved ones and Tesò regulars.
