rāga: ‘that which colours the mind’


 

Brilliant Iridescence PN1-crop5

 

BlackLineNARROWER

George Howlett is a London-based musician and writer. I cover topics loosely related to jazz, rhythm, and global improvisation, drawing on my study of guitar, tabla, and santoor in India and the UK. Above all I aim to enthuse fellow musical searchers, connecting new textures and abstract sonic interrelations to the human voices, cultures, and passions behind them.

 

Recently I’ve run a ‘beyond the repertoire’ lesson series in Guitar World, worked as an Indian classical musicologist for Darbar, and contributed to Jazzwise, The Wire, and JazzFM on subjects ranging from Coltrane and Hendrix to West African drumming and animal rhythmic capabilities. I also teach online and in local schools, and release music as Rāga Junglism. See the site for more!
