When The Nordanians (Oene van Geel, Mark Tuinstra and Niti Ranjan Biswas) played together for the first time there where immediately fireworks, roaring u-turns and cinematic tearjerkers. Then they started writing songs together based on traditional ragas, smashing funk and delicate chamber music.
The first The Nordanians release in 2011, entitled Tabla Rasa, got some great reviews. According to Dutch newspaper Volkskrant: “A three-headed monster with the lightness of a ballerina”, and according to All About Jazz “The Nordanians made clear that serious music could also be fun”.
Now, The Nordanians deliver their long awaited second baby, Dr. Mysore. Named after Mysore Manjunath the legendary Indian violinist who performed his first concert at the age of 8. His violin concerts are performed all over the world, from the Royal Albert Hall in London to the Opera House in Sydney.
However, as expected on Dr. Mysore The Nordanians take their musical expeditions even out of this planet, accompanied by a couple of energetic guests, Grammy nominated pianist John Beasley being one of them.
