Happy Dance: Inflame and "Kirwani"



Inflame gives us some music that is a mix of two traditions for today's random tune. Inflame is a New York City quartet that got together a few years ago and realized they had something with a combination of traditional flamenco and classical Indian music. Featuring mandolin, flamenco guitar, tabla, flamenco cajon and darbuka, Inflame creates a new sound that still sounds rooted in the traditional. This song, Kirwani, can be found on Inflame's eponymous 2013 release. The notes on the song say "...this tune brings about festivity, joy and happiness....The melody of Kirwani evokes warmth and invokes dance."  Just scroll on the image above and you'll be able to play the tune.
