The Sangeet Project

Sebastian Åberg

Indian Ghazal and modern electronica in groundbreaking new combination.

Sebastian Åberg has been combining tabla studies in India with drumming on club scenes in Sweden and England during the last ten years. Two seemingly different worlds that now has merged on his debut album.” I know that I’ve found the perfect combination of modern electronica and Indian art music”, he says.
And further: “Two things have been important to me during this process. First, that the origin, the raga, is handled with esteem. Secondly, that the actual musical meeting between east and west actually enhances the musical expression.”
The Sangeet Project was performed live at the Ethnografic Muséum, in Stockholm 2006. Here is a 10-minute video of “Pray”:
