This classical guitar solo pays tribute to Seringapatam, a place of great religious, cultural and historic significance located near Mysore India. With the use of glissandi the guitar gently imitates the tonal nuances and technique of bending notes on a sitar that is such a feature of Indian music, while the undulating bass rhythms represent the pulse of life and evoke images of the Kaveri river that surrounds the town and island of Seringapatam.
Seringapatam is a popular track from Bruce Paine's DVD+CD set of original guitar compositions inspired by the iconic homestead Alberton in Auckland, New Zealand. The beautiful Indian architectural style of Alberton and the Kerr Taylor family's Indian bloodline were the inspiration for this piece of music.
"I heard your brilliant music on RNZ and did some research on line until I found your website. I am so eager to hear more of your original compositions. I like the links between nature, history and music."
