Sometimes words fail us. This is one such moment. I have seen so many people performing. But this was exceptionally mersmerising.
Dub FX is a famous street performer of Australian origin. His trademark is creating rich live music using only his own performance aided by Live looping and effect pedals combined with his voice. But here in the Indian tour of his, he combined his music with Saxophone and the Sarangi. It created a world of itself taking the pub by a musical storm. They have redefined music and fusion.
Dub FX ‘s India tour shall end soon and I personally am looking forward to his next album.. The Sarangi Maestro Sabir Khan was exceptional with his Sarangi. An able successor of a family that has one of the richest heritage of Indian classical music. Their combination in Kolkata – the cultural capital of the east created magic, the viewers never gonna experience again.
While the crowd cheered to the drum and bass rhythm of hip hop and “dirty” raggae.. dancing to the beats.. they cheered after the first few notes of the sarangi were played! After the scheduled time, youngters were yelling “once more Sabir khan”, “one more track”.. I personally wanted few more 😛 The beatboxing gets redefined with the Indian classical music. Watch out for Dub FX and for Sabir Khan in future… Shall end this post with a short video clip. Enjoy and leave your responses ! Take care..!
