Silk Road Electronica: Middle Eastern to Indian melodies meets lush electronics with mesmerizing dance.
A modern-ancient bridge joining global melodies from the Silk Road with its own distinct compositions. Its soundscapes travel from Arabia to India and the Balkans to Persia, rendering the electronics of now with ancient artistry. Listen and you’ll hear the echoes of old world footsteps in the music and behold them in the dancing. Karavan Sarai forges ahead where tracks end.
Karavan Sarai’s soundscape is a global tapestry, embodying the magic of old world music and seamlessly linking its musical impulses with the heart of ancient rhythms. Karavan Sarai fully embodies tradition in its improvisations and innovations. The debut album, Woven Landscapes (2015), reached number six on the World Music Charts, while the follow-up, Painted Sands (2018), peaked at number four with over 10 weeks on the charts.
Performing at large festivals from Spirit of Tengri in Kazakhstan, Bali Spirit Fest in Indonesia and Lighting in a Bottle (LIB) in California to cultural art centers such as Makan, Cairo Jazz Club in Cairo, Egypt and CoSM (Alex Grey) in New York plus healing art retreats such as The Sanctuary in Thailand; Karavan Sarai makes for a riveting performance that engages audiences of any size. This evocative visual and sonic journey carries listeners to a nighttime courtyard of a virtual Silk Road palace, the Karavan Sarai that gave the project its name.
Composer, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist Narayan Sijan lived on the Silk Road from 1994-2006, learning and performing music with mystics, masters, and locals. He creates musical storytelling from original compositions and traditional melodies. Karavan Sarai’s electronic music is created by two-time Grammy nominee producer and programmer Carmen Rizzo, whose credits range from A.R. Rahman to co-founding the world/electronic act Niyaz.
