ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rajamani's "Flamenco India" is not Fusion music. It is rather a continuation of culture and music with a common ancient history. It is an innovative journey into the historical Indian roots of Spain's Gypsy Flamenco recorded in Spain, India and Texas and featuring legendary artists including Flamenco diva Tomasa La Macanita, Sitar master Ustad Shujaat Khan, flamenco guitar prodigy Jeronimo Maya, Sarod master Ustad Aashish Khan, Tamil folk artist Chinna Ponne and the singers from the Thar desert of Rajasthan. The album caputures the true essence and spirit of Romani (Gypsy) history, culture and music.

Rajamani has been honing his unique interpretations of flamenco and Indian music by adding new rhythms and melodies and composing original pieces of music not found anywhere. Lauded by many in the musical field including the great Paco De Lucia for his original Indo-flamenco creations, Rajamani is one of the very few artists in the world who has been shedding light on the Indian roots of Spain's Gypsy flamenco music and dance before it became a commonly recognized concept.

India is the original homeland of the Romani people or better known as Gypsies. The Romani people are historically, genetically and linguistically connected to India. According to historical data the Roma’s first appearance in Europe was in the 14th century. The term "Gypsy" comes from the misbelief Europeans had that the Roma were Egyptian. There were other misbeliefs the Europeans held of the Roma that lead to many persecutions the Romani populations faced over the hundreds of years since their arrival in Europe.
