MoonArra - profile
Jagadeesh M.R – Guitars and Oud. Honed over three
decades Jagadeesh’s styles range from mellow classical
to jazz and rock influenced sounds as he switches from
playing the nylon acoustic guitar to steel electric or world
sounds with the Oud. Jagadeesh also ‘scats’ to add to
the vocal dynamics of the group.
Madhuri – With her deep tonal vocal quality Madhuri
seamlessly moves between genres but focusing on jazz,
Indian classical and world feel varying with each
composition, be it vocal or instrumental.
Prakash Sontakke – Easily the most recognisable face of
slide guitar in India today and internationally, Prakash
Sontakke brings a rich classical Hindustaani tradition with
his evocative slide guitar playing and vocals – and
playing western genres with effortless ease. His
increasing forays into Bollywood and other film music
brings in the nuances of popular culture.
Karthik Mani – Playing a wide variety of percussion from
the Ghatam, khanjira, drums, the Peruvian ‘Cajon” and
with his fiery ‘Konnakol” (art of vocal rhythm) Karthik
leaves audiences gasping for more as he interacts and
coaxes them into joining him in an impromptu Konnakol
‘game’ or musical math!
Wilson Kenneth – Playing the electric bass guitar, Kenny
as he’s known holds a solid groove and engineers the
audio on stage and constantly works with alternative
bands in studio and on stage
