It is the meeting of three musicians of the Armorican tip sharing their compositions and their ways of apprehending the sound, with those of three musicians coming from the classical Indian tradition. The ties naturally weave between our modal musics, and thus springs a common language, which mocks well the clichés and slogans of the time, whether they are identity or universalist. Initiated by Ronan Pellen, this encounter reflects his trajectory as a traveling musician, from the Celtic Procession of Jacques Pellen to the Indian Raga tradition transmitted by his sarangi master Pandit Santosh Mishra. The pieces gathered here are mainly from the repertoire of Sukhdev, Jacques and Ronan, with a loan from Joni Mitchell. Ganga is the Ganges which borders the city of Varanasi, the sacred Indian city from which this music is inspired, the city where Sukhdev Mishra lives and to which he dedicates the title Homage to Kashi.
