Street Corner Symphony
Jazz as a form of music has long been considered to be esoteric, indeed a marker of elitism. How does one explain, then, the initiative of a group of brass saxophonists playing live at local train stations in Mumbai, amidst rush hour traffic? In performances open to the public at large? ‘Street Corner Symphony’ explores the colliding trajectories of free street performances, as a step further in freeing the creative commons, and the hallowed, burnished history of jazz in Bombay. All set to the seductive groove of a sax quintet.
