New Music : Serendib Sorcerers – Ganapathi Kavi Nada

Released yesterday comes this all new performance of ‘Ganapathi Kavi Nada’ by The Serendib Sorcerers for the Thattu Pattu series.

Serendib Sorcerers is a project that explores new musical possibilities of folk music in Sri Lanka together with improvisational, contemporary and Western approaches to music. “The medley of verses and songs here goes back to three different musical-spiritual traditions of Sinhala Buddhism: from the Low-country, the Up-country and the region in between; Sabaragamuwa. The way the rituals are played off here is still quite original. The voice is the centre, addressing the deity Ganesha. The western instruments often seem to imitate the singing voice, and sound like chatter or jungle noises. The percussion sticks to the traditional rhythms that appear to be free of beat, pulse or meter by their expressive and elusive sense of timing.” – Excerpt from the essay “Second Life” by Luise Wolf with contributions from Eshantha Joseph Peiris
