MUSICIAN Born:

Salim Nair

Born in southern India, and started playing flute a bit late...Never put it down for more than 20 years... I play an Indian bamboo flute (Bansuri), and preserves a very distinctive Indian Style. For years, I have been searching for finding a unique merging point of the highly modal Indian music to the harmonic exuberence of western. However, I did not want to lose the free, improvisational nature of Indian classical music either. So, jazz become a natural fit. In July 2005, I joined with Joe Gribbin (piano), Bill Marconi (perscussion) and Jeff Davis (Bass) to form Bamboo Jazz Quartet

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
