Just a Vibration

A 10 track world fusion album (53m 11s) — released November 27th 2015 on Drum The Bass

'Just A Vibration' is about bringing Indian classical and street music, melodies and concepts to Brass Band to make engageable, dynamic music with this very unusual, cross-cultural combination of Brass Band, Sitar, Drum Kit and Bass. The influences range from Bombay street music, Jazz, Brass, Indian classical, Bollywood, R.D. Burman, Wagner, Drum'n'bass, Dub Step, Mariachi and more. They all seem to exist harmoniously in the same space - as it is all nothing more that just a vibration! Composer Shri Sriram has been awarded the prestegious BASCA British Composer award for this project in Dec 2016.

“Sitar and brass work together remarkably well on the title track and the slinky Neck To Neck, while on the slow and drifting Tanpura the sound of the Indian drone instrument is reinterpreted on brass. 
An entertainingly varied set that would make great film music.” - Guardian 3 star Album Review

“The set was amazing – I’m still tapping my foot! What an epic concept!” - East London Radio Melissa's reaction after the Rich Mix Concert

‘To think this was Indian rock opera meets Brassed Off would be doing it huge disservice. This was like drinking a huge pot of the most indulgent creamy hot chocolate, splashed with a heavy dose of brandy combined.’ - Huddersfield Examiner 5 star review by Linzi Nicholson
