Joyshanti and Maatibani
On the occasion of la Fête de la musique, AFB will promote an Indo-French collaboration with Joyshanti and Maati Baani, a world-music concert.
French-Haitian singer and composer, Joyshanti has performed all around the world with her music that mixes Afro-American sounds with a jazzy touch, not to mention the accompanying soulful lyrics. She has also collaborated on the song “Tore Matware Naina” with the Indian band, Maati Baani.
A Mumbai-based World Music band, Maati Baani is, true to its name, the Language of the Earth. Its music blurs boundaries and celebrates differences, with en eclectic group of artists sending audiences into a tizzy with their effervescent sounds. The brainchild of Nirali Kartik (Hindustani Classical Vocalist) and Kartik Shah (composer and guitarist), Maati Baani fuses elements of rustic folk, Sufism, and different genres of World Music with Hindustani Classical, Funk and New age sounds.
