Catherine Potter's first CD, BANSURI, re-released on Shadaj Records, was recorded in Bombay with the excellent tabla-player, Kalinath Mishra and was released in Canada in 1997. DUNIYA PROJECT, her second CD (Shadaj), is a smooth blend of ancient and current traditions. It will soon be released in India on Music Today label. DUNIYA, which means 'world' in several languages, evokes as much the international flavour of the music as the diversity of the musicians involved in the project.
With the core band consisting of drummer Thom Gossage, guitarist Lubo Alexandrov, bassist Nicolas Caloia and tabla player Subir Dev, the best of Indian classical, jazz and contemporary sounds have merged in Potter's compositions, while additional instrumentation, including oriental percussion, flamenco guitar, kalimba and Indian violin played by guest musicians, further push the boundaries of the album's wide ranging musical scope.The album production by Ramachandra Borcar (aka Ramasutra / DJ Ram) successfully captures the individuality of the performers and their interaction in the studio. www.catherinepotter.net Read more on Last.fm.
