Velavan / short:
VELAVAN is another step in [dunkelbunt]s transglobal musical agenda taken from the upcoming 3 EP release EXODUS KOMPLEX. Reggae goes to India and then meets China, featuring the Indian Singer Anuradha Genrich: fusion-confusion, spicy and deep.

Kurztext Velavan:
VELAVAN ist der nächste Schritt in [dunkelbunt]s transglobaler Agenda des aktuellen EXODUS KOMPLEX. Reggae im Stil von Indien bis China – mit der indischen Sängerin Anuradha Genrich am Mikrofon: Fusion & Konfusion, prickelnd entspannt.

Reggae – straight out of Asia. Velavan is the next stage of [dunkelbunt]s transglobal muscial agenda, with his current project “EXODUS KOMPLEX” (3 EP/CD 2019).

The track experiments with Far Eastern soundscapes, reggae beats played on Chinese instruments, the erhu and guzheng, with vocals coming from the Indian singer Anuradha Genrich.

Ever since [dunkelbunt]s headline concert at the BEANTOWN BACKYARD FESTIVAL in Bangalore (October 2018) a fascination with India developed that began on the tour itself and continued to inspire on the journey home, with the original concepts for the songs “Velavan” and “Ufos over Bengaluru” (December 2018)

With her beguiling voice, Anuradha Genrich tells of the poetic deity VELAVAN, the patron of the Tamil language. She studied classical Indian (carnatic) music in Madras and in recent years has collaborated with numerous international musicians (Desert Dwellers, Zion Train, Laya Project). Currently she resides in Vienna.

Reggae – straight out of Asia. Velavan ist [dunkelbunt]s nächste Etappe auf seiner transglobalen, musikalischen Agenda mit dem aktuellen Projekt “EXODUS KOMPLEX” (3 EP/CD 2019).
Der Track experimentiert mit fernöstlichen Klangfarben (chinesische Erhu und Guzheng). Am Mikrofon ist die indische Sängerin Anuradha Genrich.

Seit dem Auftritt von [dunkelbunt] als Headliner beim BEANTOWN BACKYARD FESTIVAL in Bangalore (Oktober 2018) glüht die Faszination Indiens nach. Bereits auf der Tour und im Flugzeug nach Europa entstanden die Layouts zu den Songs “Velavan” und “Ufos over Bengaluru” (Dezember 2018)

Mit betörender Stimme erzählt Anuradha Genrich von der poetischen Gottheit VELAVAN, dem Patron der tamilischen Sprache. Die Sängerin hat in Madras klassische indische Musik studiert und in den letzten Jahren mit zahlreichen internationalen Musikern (Desert Dwellers, Zion Train, Laya Project) kollaboriert. Sie lebt heute in Wien.
