Fathers, Sons & Brothers (2018)

 

‘Fathers, Sons & Brothers’ is the second album from cross-cultural folk-jazz group, The Three Seas. The music combines the ancient and the original and reflects upon the different roles the band members play in family life. Since recording their debut album ‘Haveli’ in 2013 the group have thought about their creative output and developed a deeper understanding of their sound. The new music on this beautiful album is a reflection of this process and captures a more authentic, acoustic, robust and honest sounding band.

Traditional Baul, carnatic and nepalese folk songs have been exquisitely arranged by the group and feature the vocal talents of Raju Das Baul and Deoashish Mothey. Original works utilising the diverse array of instruments at the groups disposal make up the rest of the album from composers Matt Keegan, Gaurab Chatterjee and Deoashish Mothey. Local Sydney jazz legends invited to play on the album include Steve Elphick, Carl Dewhurst, James Greening and Ben Hauptman. ‘Fathers,Sons & Brothers’ was recorded in Sydney, Australia at Free Energy Device Studios by co-producer Richard Belkner.
