Sandy Evans and Friends with Guru Kaaraikkudi Mani and Sruthi Laya - Cosmic Waves

This stunning new release on renowned Indian label Underscore Records celebrates the collaborative work of Sandy Evans, one of Australia’s leading jazz musicians, with Guru Kaaraikkudi Mani’s brilliant Carnatic music ensemble Sruthi Laya.

The beautiful improvisations and compositions on Cosmic Waves explore the ocean as a metaphor for cross-cultural dialogue, creating links through music for the deep expression of the human spirit. ‘My first encounter with the power of Carnatic music was in 1996 when I toured India as a member of the Australian Art Orchestra (AAO)1. We had the privilege of collaborating with South Indian mridangam maestro Guru Kaaraikkudi Mani. The spark lit by Guru Mani on that tour eventually led to this recording.’ Sandy Evans Sandy was in India in March 2012 performing for the AAO with Adrian Sherriff and Sruthi Laya at “Daya. On Kindness: Australia India Cultural Exchange” in Delhi on 16th March.

This project is a celebration of 20 years of Australia India cross-cultural exchanges, in collaboration with the Australia-India Council and RMIT.
