Magma Project
Curated by: The Brazilian Consulate in Mumbai & G5A

Presenting the Magma Project: new combinations of musical colours and flavours, based in the repertoire of Brazilian music, It presents original compositions by Ivan Vendemiatti and pieces from notorious Brazilian composers such as Hermeto Pascoal, Gilberto Gil, Tom Jobim, Egberto Gismonti, Sivuca, Heraldo do Monte, Edmilson do Pife, Egildo Vieira, Edu Lobo.


Passes available on BookMyShow.


The fusion of Bansuri (Ivan Vendemiatti) with Oud and Seven String Guitar (Juliano Abramovay) and Tabla (Anutosh Degharia) creates unique arrangements of instrumental compositions and opens rich possibilities for exploration in rhythm, harmony and melody.


Magma is the core of our planet, the Sun inside the Earth, the place where things meet and melt. It's the inner vital energy that is in constant motion and expansion, eventually overflowing to the surface and, by doing so, creating new territories to be discovered.
