Album Notes
GaPa is a duo comprised of musicians Ganesh Anandan and Patrick Graham. Based in Montréal, the two percussionists have been working closely together for the past 5 years, exploring new techniques and compositional structures for percussion with a special emphasis on finger drumming styles.
Featuring compositions by both artists, and employing an extensive array of instruments, such as the bodhran, kanjira, riqq, taiko and invented instruments. GaPa draws inspiration from styles and traditions as varied as Irish, Arabic, and Japanese music. In particular, the complex South-Indian, or karnatak rhythmic system permeates the duo's sound. With a sense of humour, a modern sensibility, vocal percussion and melodic elements, this unique duo is an organic cross-cultural mélange that defies classification.
GaPa often collaborates with guest artists, including concert appearances with noted percussionists Glen Velez, USA (1999), Ramesh Shotham, India (2001) and Carlo Rizzo, Italy (2001).

Critics have classified GaPa as a personal and unique percussion duo. The musicians have a wide range of finger and hand techniques that combine South Indian, Persian and personalised styles. They make their instruments speak and sing so to speak!
