In the “Universal Exhibition of Paris” of 1889, composers such as Debussy discovered musical sounds and aesthetics as fascinating as they were far from the common Western practice. Without hardly hesitating, they included the airs that they liked in their following compositions, forming today part of the academic repertoire. In the 21st century, access to musical practices from all over the world is easier than ever, although the general tendency of conservatories has been more to preserve than to innovate; something very legitimate given the beauty of the scores of past centuries. Equally legitimate is the mixture, the musical experimentation, and take something out of this devastating globalization, however, to some has helped us to understand our deepest human essence; especially, through music.
In this Concerto of Sitar and Guitar, a repertoire will be played in which the mixture of music, aesthetics and cultures will be the general tone. Classical music from India, western ancient music and popular music from the Iberian Peninsula will be combined with their own compositions. Thanks to the use of electronics, the sounds of the two instruments, sitar and guitar, can be heard at the same time in some of the works.
