An amazingly beautiful rendition of Jazz music from Israel was witnessed by Guwahati on September 25, 2017 at the District Library, Ambari, Guwahati. The concert was organised by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations, Guwahati in collaboration with Directorate of Library Services, Govt. of Assam.

From L to R: Swapnanil Barua, Pranaame Bhagawati & Moinul Haque.

The evening was inaugurated by culturally literate and retired IAS Mr. Swapnanil Barua, Regional Officer of ICCR Mrs. Pranaame Bhagawati and senior mime artiste and Sangeet Natak Akademi awardee Mr. Moinul Haque.

The Jazz music was rendered by internationally famed Jazz trio group, led by Yogev Shetrit from Israel who is a well known drummer and music composer. He was accompanied by two young and energetic musicians, namely Stav Goldberg in Piano and Meni Welt in Bass. The trio presented the compositions from their newly launched music album, the New Path.

The troupe is a part of the 7th International Jazz Music Festival, organised by the ICCR, New Delhi. After their performance in New Delhi, the trio is on northeast India visit with their performance presentation. Their precision in music delivery and bringing out some exquisite musical pieces are enjoyed and appreciated by the audience.

After their performance in Guwahati, Shetrit and his group would further visit Aizawl and Shillong for their musical rendition. It is indeed a great way by ICCR in bringing international artistes and showcasing their artistic potentialities, which further strengthens India’s international diplomatic relation.

More such art forms of international genre are solicited. More ICCR’s update could be found from their official Facebook page.
