Taj Mahal Travellers at Galerie Nordenhake, Stockholm 20 November – 20 December

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Taj Mahal Travellers was a legendary Japanee inprov/sational group founded in 1969 by former Group Orgaku leader and Fluxus member Takehisa Kosugi. They combined Eastern and Western instruments, electronics and vocal chants and used heavy post production processing to create unique long flowing jams with deep organic droning and pulsing. Their music is considered to be the pinnacle of Asian psychedelic music of the late 60's and early 70's. Their founder later became a classical composer, notably composing scores for the Merce Cunninigham Dance Company and presenting sound installations at a number of art festivals. 

The exhibition aims to recreate this experimental attitude with an openess to materials and conceptual positions outside a canonic perspective. The artists included in Taj Mahal Travellers blur the boundaries between process and material, pushing both to their extremes.
