Why move around in just one world when you can be at home in many?
Music like a road trip inside our mind. Resembling the soundtrack of a film that only exists in your imagination. Episodes shot on the roads between Germany and India. Fore- and backgrounds alternate. Perspectives change.
The “Weltenvereiner” *combiner of worlds* (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) from the Max Clouth Clan are now Ragawerk. They play with hymnic melodies, cinematic sounds, atmospheric themes and stirring rhythms. Western and Indian influences merge into a characteristic sound, while the band combines sophisticated structures with expressive improvisations.
After their debut record “Return Flight” (2015) the band received the jazz award of the City of Frankfurt in 2017. They released two more albums: “Kamaloka” in 2018 and “Studio Konzert” in 2019. “Studio Konzert” – vinyl only – was recorded live at the legendary Bauer Studios, featuring a string section and electronic artist Kabuki on modular synthesizer.
The band is touring extensively in Germany and India, performed at the Jazzfest Brandenburg, Palmengarten Jazz Festival Frankfurt, Giants of Jazz Festival Delhi and the Goethe Institutes in Chennai, Trivandrum and Hyderabad, among other venues.
