Promo video for the Outworld Orkestra, featuring footage from the 2012 Roots & Blues Festival. Videography by Bohdan Doval.
This year’s Unity festival in Winlaw, BC opened with world music improv group “Shrutrio”, composed of Prashant Michael John on vocals & resonator guitar, Marty Carter on flute, saxophone, Akai Ewi wind synth and djembe, and Ben Johnson on oud and tabla. Building on repertoire developed during Kirtan night performances together, the trio took some traditional song forms along with some of Prashant’s original pieces into extra-dimensional sacred space.
What a wonderful way to open a festival! Photography by Bohdan Doval.
