Album Notes
On June 22, 2011 four musicians met for the first time at a recording studio in Singapore. They entered a recording room, set up their instruments and with little discussion and no plan whatsoever, did what they do best - play music LIVE! 4 hours later, the result of this spontaneous combustion was The Riverwalk Session - 14 musical pieces bursting at the seams with intensity and emotion in a blend of styles that could never have been imagined or ever concocted.

Each track contains a mixture of styles and sounds only as unique and multi-cultural as the creators - a guitar and mandolin player from Kerala (India), a Singaporean classical singer, an American harmonica playin’ blues journeyman and a clarinet player who uses musical theory to fuse noise with music.

Prepare to be mesmerized by real music by real musicians playing acoustic instruments in a 3how way that can probably never be recreated! Until the next time*… if ever!

*at the time of release of this album in July 2012, the same bunch of musicians had not ever met or played music together after this recording….

All songs written, performed and produced by:
Amith Narayan - guitar, mandolin, hand percussion and backing vocals
Bani Haykal - clarinet, maui xaphoon, cymbals, flute and guitar
Curtis King – guitar, slide and harmonica
Wilson Goh – vocals

Co-produced by Stephen Black

Stuart Rankin

Riverside sessions at Shuswap Lake
Every 'throw cushion' from the cottage tossed in a rowboat tied to the dock. Pitcher of sangria next to it. Me in the boat, soaking up the sun and fruit in the glass. A kid and his guitar filtering down to the edge of Shuswap lake. Lovely voices and glorious guitar tones. Couldn't ask for a better British Columbian summer day.


Riverwalk at Shuswap Lake
Perfect music for a lazy Shuswap Lake holiday. Feels like the musicians are in the room with me.

Ed Victori

A genre of its own
Tribal and individualistic. Meditative, stimulating and fun. The two versions of "Since You've Been Gone" are both beautifully haunting. Rimbaud would have loved this music; the Riverwalk Session is a mischievous stream of sounds, waiting for his "boat as fragile as a butterfly in May."
Great music to have on while I write and work, especially about ART. Find me at www.facebook.com/victorimuseum
