Niraj Chag - A quick update

E-mail Print PDF
More about this Artist

This was a short and sweet email questionnaire that Niraj Chag answered for the AV readers to enjoy. 

AV: Tell me about your history with Outcaste? 
NC: I signed to Outcaste records when I first moved to London (from Southampton), around 1997. I had been experimenting with fusing sounds for quite a few years and was delighted to learn that there was a whole 'Asian fusion' scene in London. I worked with Outcaste records till 2001 and then we parted company. It was a mutual decision as I wanted to move more into composition work for TV, theatre and dance and Outcaste records were also changing their musical direction.

AV: Tell me a bit about 'Baiju Bawra'? How did you get involved in that project?
NC: Very shortly after leaving Outcaste, I participated in a musical theatre workshop at theatre royal Stratford east. It was here that I started learning about musical theatre. I collaborated with so many brilliant artists as part of the workshop. When I finished the workshop I left a copy of some of my Outcaste work to a few people there. A few months later I was approached by the theatre - they really liked my work and wanted to work on a show with me. They asked me if I had any ideas and I suggested updating an old (quite leftfield for the time) Indian film called 'baiju bawra' for the stage. They loved the idea and 'baiju bawra' the musical was born.

Disdain for digital in a digital age?

E-mail Print PDF

I wonder what,

digitally produced clichéd music

is? Considering MIDI, which practically every musician out there uses, has the word Digital right in it's name. Whatever it is...Talvin Singh disdain's it

Eh whatever; rather than delve into what a hypocritically oxymoronic statement that is...I am just going to mention that Talvin's new album is going to be called Sweet Box (refer to link above). 

YAY! the man is working on an album....I wonder if he used a digital keyboard while producing it.

Review: We, of the South Asian American backing, always tend to forget those among us who made it here after a stop off somewhere else. South Asians have become Americans by way of such varied places as Canada, Mexico, Kenya, Gyuana, Trinidad etc. Moreover, each of these places has provided cultural addition to the diaspora that we now call the South Asian American Experience. These additions have helped us realize that we are all varied but share the same ancestry.
