Full orchestral return to local live performance since 2020 – and conducted by Austin Symphony Orchestra maestro Peter Bay, no less – Oliver Rajamani debuts 10th album VASI in spectacular fashion at the historic Paramount. In Indian Western, a contemporary fusion of Indian folk with European Romani music and Lone Star Americana, the LP soars on string orchestration while stirring in honeyed melodic sweeps and worldly percussion. Jazz legend Diane Schuur, Hungarian Romani fiddler Roby Lakatos, Armenian duduk player Jivan Gasparyan, and French guitarist Amati Schmitt guest on VASI, whose release promises appearances among them and more. A pioneer of ATX globalism musically, Rajamani returns in grand style.
