Belgium Meets India


Europalia.india will be an occasion for encounters, but also for reunions. Amongst them, that of the Belgian blues man Roland and the chitraveena player N. Ravikiran shouldn’t be missed.

Roland van Campenhout, better known as Roland, is a blues master and eclectic musician, who for more than 35 years has delighted in effortlessly experimenting with a wide variety of musical styles such as folk, country and world music.

His partner for this concert, Chitravina N. Ravikiran, with whom he already played in 2009, is probably one of the most active Indian composers of Western classical music and on the world music scene. Both as a master of the chitraveena (fretless lute) – of which he is currently the best performer in the world – singer, composer, guru, and exceptional speaker, he is also the inventor of the melharmony concept, a new approach to composition and musical aesthetics. The melharmony seeks to create synergies between the specificities of oriental and Western music traditions by integrating melodic concepts and harmonic dimensions absent in one or the other tradition.

Two exceptional musicians in a unique musical reunion.
