The US Mission in India and Teamwork Fine Arts Society is organising the India tour of highly acclaimed jazz group House of Waters from November 28 to December 8. The tour, sponsored by the US Embassy in New Delhi, will be part of Teamwork Arts’ Jazz India Circuit (JIC), a modern-day speakeasy, giving music-lovers and jazz aficionados the freedom to dream and live their music the way they want to.
Widely acclaimed for their uniquely progressive style, House of Waters is a trio that defies categorisation as they incorporate elements of West-African folk, jazz, psychedelic, indie rock, classical and world music into their astonishingly versatile sound. They have shared the stage with Ravi Shankar, Tinariwen, Jimmy Cliff, KODO, Blitz the Ambassador, Dave Eggar and many others.
The 12-day India tour will feature jazz performances and workshops in Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Goa, Hyderabad and Delhi to engage enthusiasts and artists and promote jazz through a series of collaborative concerts. The once-in-a-lifetime collaborations will feature House of Waters performing with artists like BC Manjunath at BFlat Bar, Indiranagar in Bangalore; mridangam artiste Praveen Sparsh at Taj Krishna in Hyderabad; Warren Mendoza and Karsh Kale at the JIC International Festival Goa; and Indian classical flutist Ajay Shankar Prasanna, at the Delhi Arts International Festival, New Delhi.
