Description

Oliver Rajamani performs innovative soul-stirring original music, including traditional Romani and Indian folk/Gypsy songs. Rajamani has created a sound of his own with the historic threads of Indian/Gypsy folk, Romani and Texas cultures and music while bringing recognition to the historical Indian origins of the Romani people. His performances and recordings with international artists are as stylistically far-flung as Willie Nelson, Gypsy Kings, Eric Johnson, Dotschy Reinhardt, Edie Brickell, L. Shankar, Jeronimo Maya, Ustad Aashish Khan, Ustad Shujaat Khan, and Tomasa La Macanita. Touring programs include: Flamenco India, an innovative musical journey into the deep and historical Indian roots of Spain’s Gypsy flamenco, consisting of a colorfully large ensemble of dancers and musicians from the Indian and flamenco traditions; Texas Gypsy Lonestar, bringing recognition to Romani center and historical archives in Austin, Rajamani unites India, Romani and Texas cultures through original compositions backed by traditional Lone Star musicians; and Moonlight Tanz, Rajamani with his western string orchestra featuring musicians and dancers from the Middle Eastern and Indian/Romani traditions with performances on exotic instruments such as the rebab and oud.
