MaMoGi visits the city with their well-known jazz, techno, and progressive rock songs as well as a fresh line of products.
Music MaMoGi, who recently finished their tour of India, will perform tomorrow in Chennai. They provide an eclectic combination of progressive rock, techno, and jazz music. The band will bring new music, souvenirs, and more to the city, according to prodigy bassist Mohini Dey, drummer Gino Banks, and saxophonist Mark Hartsuch. “Since there isn’t another band with a combination of saxophone, bass, and drums, I’m interested to see how the audience responds. They haven’t had the opportunity to experience anything like it before, she continues, noting that The Chennai Scene’s event will feature MaMoGi’s upcoming new album tracks. We’ll also play some of my own original songs from my next album, due out in the near future.
She claims that although the product had been in development for a few months, it took off swiftly. “After a month of rehearsal, we managed to record 11 songs in only two days. Then, adds Mohini, “we started working on goods like T-shirts and stickers.
Gino enjoys performing in the city because he “discovers the crowd to be musically interested.” He adds that the three songs that offer him “great delight to play” are “Jitlada,” “Itsy Bitsy,” and “Buttery Buns,” and that doing so enables them to “explore our music at a greater level and reach new performance heights with the enthusiasm from the crowd in Chennai.” They have amazing arrangements despite being distinct tunes.
the impact of India
Given his recent trips to India, Mark, whose career includes jazz, gospel, instrumental R&B, funk, and American pop, claims that “it is evident to me that India’s effect on my music has been significant.” In terms of rhythm, Mark claims that his classmates have been his influences. “Horace Bray, Jordan Gheen, and Matt Young, among others, have greatly affected me. Since moving to India, Gino and Mohini have taught me more about konnakol, the practise of singing percussion syllables. I never thought to do it before, but now I find myself spontaneously ending my solos and melodic passages with Tihai’s, a polyrhythmic device used in Indian classical music.
On November 12, the band will also take part in a series of music workshops called Fall Camp, which will be held at the Swarnabhoomi Academy of Music. In our masterclass, Gino and I will discuss a wide range of topics, including time, rhythmic content, history, and the lessons we gained as developing artists. The course will include a lot of theory, a technique-focused component, as well as group playing, she says.
