The Adventures of Dizzy Sal| Naresh Fernandes | #mondayfixgoa 6 Assagao 9th December 2019

In 1959, ace Indian pianist Edward Saldanha -who was known to his fans as Dizzy Sal, arrived in the US to study at the famed Berkeley School of Music on a scholarship that he’s won, thanks to the support of jazz legend Dave Brubeck. Over the next few years, Dizzy Sal won a loyal following in the US North East, and recorded as a sideman on a well-regarded album. By 1962, he was back at the family home in Bangalore and rarely performed after that. What happened? | Naresh Fernandes will use archival music clips and rare photographs to tell his fascinating story. | #goanarratives #thusgoa #thustalks Poster by @palebluedotgoa contribution 200/-, please arrive early. #indianjazzjourney #mondayfixgoa #thustalks

Avant Garde Jazz, The Road Less Travelled|Lec Dem by Vj Xavier|April 30th, 7 pm, 6 Assagao


Avant-garde jazz (also known as avant-jazz) is a style of music and improvisation that combines avant-garde art music and composition with jazz.

Every human has the potential to improvise music. A natural human impulse, in which, we tap into our own limitless supply of original music. The source of music is found within oneself, thus opening the door to a lifetime of creative fulfillment and artistic expression.

On this International Jazz Day, April 30th, Vijay Xavier will be sharing his journey of music, compositions and his approach to Jazz repertoire.
