Aman Mahajan is a pianist/composer and computer-musician/producer. Fortunate to have worked with a wide variety of musicians of diverse cultural backgrounds, Mahajan is influenced by jazz, folk, classical and electronic music from around the world, and deeply inspired by a sense of universal unity and connection. Graduating from the Berklee College of Music in 2007, Mahajan is now based out of Bangalore, India, where he leads jazz/world ensemble REFUGE.
REFUGE is a set of musical themes by pianist Aman Mahajan, interpreted by a quartet. Equal parts structured and improvised, the music draws on jazz, classical and folk music influences from around the world.
Aman Mahajan - piano
Matt Littlewood - saxophone
Mishko M'ba - bass guitar
Jeoraj George - drumset
The central theme is a sense of universal connection. The music, written and arranged over the last decade, is designed to provide space for musicians to improvise together. Each performance is highly interactive in nature. The musicians bring in their own sense of aesthetic and style into their interpretations, resulting in a natural fusion of their influences. As a result, every performance promises to be spontaneously different.
