"Ragleela- A jazzy twist to the Indian classical"

Fantastic sitar playing....a very enchanting concert, vibrating and melodious, jazzy and uplifting. Audience couldn't help but move to the music.
- Bharat Times


"Sitar casts spell at Fest"

Uwe Neumann at the Asian Heritage Festival - Gazette, Montreal, July 5, 2002


"Ragleela Caravan"

Recorded in India, Germany and Canada, Neumann's Caravan compositions start from trad Indian ragas. They're simplified,injected with a noticable Indonesian gamelan flavour and recalibrated to accept Western tonalities and , by extension, mild prog-rock elements. From here to India via Africa, Germany, Latin America and Bali is a roundabout route, but the arrival is a pleasent one. 8/10 - Montreal Mirror 28.11.2002


"Seduced by Indian Rythms"

Beyond the mystique of the land, it's the complex body of art forms that's drawing foreign students to the university that is India
...they aim to be serious practitioners of Indian art forms.
- Outlook magazine, India, 4.97

Bio

Ragleela is a unique concept of merging the Indian Classical Music of top quality with light western harmonisations and form.
A dynamic and moving spiritual experience between Ravi Shankars orchestrations, Jai Uttals accessibility and Oregons freeness to promote peace among people.
Ragleela participates to a better understanding between the orient and the occident with its original, rich and surprising compositions. In a time where multiculturalism holds so much importance, the harmonious and daring music of Ragleela creates a bridge between these two cultures.
