Genre: World / Fusion

This is the clarion call of Project YUJ, India’s newest genre-defying “fusion” ensemble. Yuj, a Sanskrit word that means to join or to concentrate, is indicative of the group’s manifesto — to bring out and fuse its multitude of influences into a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. The group members’ diverse musical backgrounds and formidable chops allow for flights of improvisational freedom and virtuosity while still maintaining accessibility and musicality.

“At present, there are not many groups in India, and South India specifically, that are really trying to improvise and authentically fuse all of these disparate styles while staying true to the vital aspects of each,” said Prakash Hariharan, the group’s electric mandolin player. “We want to honor the musicality of these styles and at the same time look beyond the confines of a genre to create something new, original and accessible. This isn’t something that music fans in India have as much of locally, and we are thrilled to move forward and start offering it.”
