Jaipur Olympic Beats, Part One

8 years ago3.9K views

THE PLACE, THE BEATS :
Every place has its own Rhythm and its own Beats. It’s the way a city,
town or village moves and how U feel about it.
London has The Rhythm, Mississippi-Delta has The Blues
( positive blues ) and a city like Jaipur has The Beats !
If your are in Como, Italy, especially on the lake front, you feel
soft and subdued Beats, gentle like the waves on the lake !

THE JAIPUR OLYMPIC BEATS :
When I played this, Sunny Arnim said it sounds like JAIPUR
and we need to pass on these Beats to the WORLD !
Sunny should know, because he is an original Jaipurean !

So, we have named this THE JAIPUR OLYMPIC BEATS
and will pass on these Beats to the World.
We will take these Beats to The Olympics 1012 in London,
Olympics 2016 and beyond !
An Olympic Endeavour as part of
THE OLYMPIC MUSIC MARATHON ( MaraTone ) !
Jaipur’s contribution to the spirit of the ancient Olympics.

THE PERCUSSION STYLE :
INDO-FLAMENCO
JOURNEY ON THE ROUTES TO THE ROOTS
The Style is Indo-Flamenco, Created and developed by me,
combining the Elements of Flamenco, Raaga and Tabla.

JOURNEY ON THE ROUTES TO THE ROOTS OF FLAMENCO !

The Beats are played on the Acoustic Guitar body Top, using
Fingers, Nails and Palm. While playing, the right hand is moved
to different parts of the Guitar-Top to get different sounds.
With the left hand, the strings are touched lightly so as to
minimize or to avoid String-Sounds.

KEEPING THE BEATS :
Please do not try 2 keep the Beat, because, I have played this
Free-Style ( I always do ). You should actually let the Beats lead you.

GUITAR :
Hoefner JUMBO Acoustic ( deep and wide body ).
Approximately 4 year old Guitar, but in good shape considering
all the Percussion-Beatings it has endured all these years.

STRINGS :
Martin Extra Light Guage, Bronze.

The Jaipur images are by Sunny Arnim.

Thanx 4 watching and listening !
Cheeeeeeeeers from LUCIUS and Sunny Arnim !
