ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Karnatriix is the soul-soothing culmination of a band of musicians' experiments with different styles and sounds, much like a new colour produced by the skillful combination of various hues and shades. It has elements of jazz, blues, rock, trance, funk, and classical sounding in perfect harmony with the Carnatic kritis of Saint Thyagaraja.

KARNATRIIX's soundscape stretches out far beyond what has been created hitherto. It is contemporary and yet traditional. It is not simple and yet not complicated. It is electronica and also acoustica. You can chill out or just sit in silent contemplation as the music fills up your senses. Misguided and conflicting it might seem, but the music is direct and clear, offering Indian classical creations in a new age package to people all over the world.

KARNATRIIX is not just another trick out of the sagging bag of what goes for fusion music these days. It is not a traditional melody trapped in a melting pot of sampled copy-and-paste grooves topped by more samples of ambient keyboard and bass textures. The music, with a contemporary feel, has been woven carefully around the traditional melody, entailing years of study and a clear and very deep understanding of the different styles and rhythms used in the compositions.

KARNATRIIX features John Anthony on guitars and Ustad Faiyaz Ahamed Khan on vocals/sarangi.

Says John Antony: "Our music is an extension of our soul and freewill. We believe strongly in our freedom to express ourselves by doing what we do best and that is making music and ultimately experiencing it. We hope other people too can share our experience."

Sublime
This is my first tryst with John Anthony's music..but I am an old time fan of Entharo and its variants..Casting Entharo in a bluesy mood tone without sacrificing its inherent qualities attracted me to this album..a thorough winner all the way..Oh and I also had a chance to talk to John..a very nice gentleman who is sincere in his love for music.

Very impressiv e
The artist has succeeded in retaining the carnatic musical heritage in his fusion renderings. Great work.
