Jazz – A tribute to Pink Floyd

Tuesday night with excitement of pack full Sri Aurobindo Auditorium, Bharat Nivas for the concert tribute to Pink Floyd by Rita Marcotulli Jazz Ensemble. Pink Floyd in jazz? Some might have asked but what we heard was an unique fusion of known songs as from the early "Astronomy Domine?" and "Set the controls to the hart of the sun", to the best known "Money", "Us and them", "The wall", "Crazy diamond", to the less known "Saint Tropez", "Cyrrus minor". Pink Floysd's songs interwoven with jazz solos of the members of the band went higher than audience's expectations; and yet as very natural flow of clear electric pieces fused with jazz. Presented by the Italian Pavilion. Lineup Raiz - Voice Rita Marcotulli - Pianoforte and keyboard Andy Sheppard - Sax Alessandro Paternesi - Drums Ares Tavolazzi - Electric Bass Michele Rabbia - percussion and electronics Fausto Mesolella - Guitar and effects More photos by Coriolan Weihrauch (Mia Studio) are available here:

Jazz Cafe no1at Visitors Centre

The First Jazz Cafe of this year at Visitor’s Center last night was trying to promote and support the Potter’s Market which is still going on for the next two days.
In a relaxed atmosphere with friends and family, a rising full moon over the palm trees …. and many musicians….. a sure recipe for a successful evening.

We have heard many great songs, improvisations, and we had a good time chatting with friends, eating Johnny’s ragi dosais….and more …

once more talent, creativity, dedication of the community came forward …

kudos to Joel for great sound, without whom the event would hardly be possible…but of course there are many others, starting with Rolf and Ange, as main organizersalong with Paul as MC, many AV singers, musicians….plus some guests
