HUGE UPDATE OF THE C&E SITE

There might still be some minor problems but basically the Country & Eastern site should look very up-to-date now. Jonas and Jon at Spektra Design have modernized it considerably for all platforms, now it is quite easy to use even on your phone. We are very satisfied and we hope you will like it.

Beches Indian Brew - concert tour October 16 - 29 

Thanks to a grant from Musikverket we have been able to visit India twice during the last twelve months to give concerts and co-operate with some of the greatest musicians in the Hindustani and Karnatic traditions. In October -15 Berger Knutsson Spering visited and in January -16 Beches Brew gave quite a few concerts. You can see some videos from these concerts at our YouTube page.
NOW it is time for the return visit when four of today's greatest Karnatic vidwans will join in Beches Indian Brew for a series of concerts and seminars in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Malmö, Kristianstad, Norrköping and Umeå.
Here is all about Beches Indian Brew

Here you have the ingredients, great musicians from India, Ghana and Sweden:

Akkarai Subhalakshmi and Akkarai Sornalatha

are two of the major Karnatic musicians today, wellknown as the Akkarai Sisters. They are not only violinists extraordinaire but fabulous singers as well. Sornalatha played with us last december in Chennai and we are extremely happy that her elder sister Subhalakshmi is joining for the October tour. They will be joined by two incredible percussionists, mridangam vidwan Jayachandra Rao and khanjira vidwan Shree Sundarkumar, also known as "Kanjira Man". Here are presentations of the Akkarai Sisters and team. Apart from the concerts we do together there will be some concerts with pure Karnatic music that you don't want to miss. Find our schedules below.

Senior Master Drummer Doe Kushiator

Extra addition from Ghana! Senior Master Drummer Doe Kushiator has the status of a priest in the ancient Blekete cult and is a legendary Ewe drummer in West Africa that Bengt Berger was learning from 1975-77. ”Together our percussionists will offer spectacular rhythmic fireworks”. Doe played with us when he visited Sweden in 2014.
