|Series notes||Baluji Shrivastav formed the ensemble Jazz Orient, with his wife and fellow singer Linda Shanovitch and musician Chris Conway in 1992. The group emerged out of relationships formed with other musicians of diverse musical traditions who all believed in three principles of music: exploration of different compositional techniques, interacting with other musicians from different traditions, and improvisation. The music Baluji wanted to produce through his fusion work was a sound unlimited by traditional boundaries and an acceptance of diverse musical influences. The ensemble frequently performs live, and invites guest musicians to complement their work in the studio and in concert performances. |
