ScatNip ! Raghav Sreyas
Last week, I put together this five-minute slideshow of photographs shot by my friend Raghav Sreyas (1973 – 2008) , set to his music.
Raghav was a very close friend. The slideshow has ethereal black-and-white photographs of urban Bangalore (Koshy’s, Premier Bookshop) set to a haunting melody that was co-composed by Raghav.
In the song, you can hear Raghav performing his improvised form of Konnakol, the ancient South Indian art of vocal percussion. Konnakol is like scat-singing in Jazz . If you’ve never heard it before (or even if you have) I urge you to listen to Raghav’s unique rendition of it .It is sure to leave you amazed.
