A musical conversation of open expression and free will. A dialogue speaking slowly along harmonic lines before the melodies and poetry evolve into a improvisational engagement and onto a life of their own.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A Minneapolis-based ensemble consisting of Sitar, Voice and Tabla.
Mashari Trio is a musical conversation of open expression and free will.
A dialogue speaking slowly along harmonic lines before the melodies and
poetry evolve into a improvisational engagement and onto a life of their own.

This, their self-titled debut recording together, is the ground work to developing an improvisational style unique to themselves. Recorded live at Sacred Heart Studios in Duluth, MN- it captures a moment in time, like a sonic snapshot—definitely one to save.

Musically trained and studied in a variety of styles, each musician brings the ability to speak to each other—and as a group, in a musical way that is both unique and engaging to the listener.

Sitar player Mark Ilaug is well-versed in Western music as well as Indian
Classical traditions. Sitar is a stringed instrument from India, expressing melody and rhythm. Being a musician of 25 years; an accomplished guitar player, Mark is a student of Hindustani Classical Sitar and is devoted to developing and expressing his voice through his instrument.

Shahzore Shah is currently a member of Cantus, the Twin Cities-based male a cappella vocal ensemble. Primarily a performer of opera, oratorio and chamber music and informed by years of listening to ghazal poetry, Indian classical and pop music, Shahzore offers a rich vocal texture to the collaboration.

Richard Davenport performs and speaks with Tabla, a pair of small different-sized hand drums used in Indian Classical Music. Capturing, delivering and expressing the sound that is as unique as it is beautiful. Richard has been studying, playing, performing and absorbing music his entire life, he brings a wide palette of musical knowledge and emotion to Mashari Trio.

Open yourself to to expression
Whether listening critically or closing your eyes for a moment of peace, Mashari Trio will, with your participation, open you to a peace seldom found in western music. This CD gracefully blends study from the west with expression from the east into 3 wonderful tracks of grounded thought and lofty dreaming. I highly recommend this disk. I found myself meditating-something I don't practice regularly!
