KARNATRIIX’s music has elements of jazz, blues, rock, trance, funk, and classical sounding in perfect harmony with the Carnatic kritis of Saint Thyagaraja. It is not a traditional melody trapped in a melting pot of sampled copy-and-paste grooves topped by more samples of ambient keyboard and bass textures. The music, with a contemporary feel, has been woven carefully around the traditional melody, entailing months of study and a clear and very deep understanding of the different styles and rhythms used in the compositions.
The concept album has songs that are based on a trip from dawn to dusk, a dialogue between man and nature and a link between the known and the unknown. The album also contains groovy yet brilliantly melodic compositions by Saint Thyagaraja.
The band believes in playing classical music with a difference, but classical music nevertheless.Belief in our freedom to express thoughts by doing what we do best.
To allow music. To experience the music that comes along. Music… an extension of our soul and freewill. Elements of jazz, blues, trance, funk… but Indian at the same time. Simple? No. Complex? Umm… No…
Redefining the world of contemporary classical music with New Age groovy sound experiments. A musical evolution… An astral journey of experience…
