Mynta – Meetings in India
Mynta, Swedish for mint, are veterans in the world of Music. Having started out in 1979 as primarily a blues, jazz, latin band they slowly turned to fusion and jazz rock in the 80-s. And then in 1987 on a tour of India they met Fazal Qureshi, the son of the illustrious Alla Rakha and the brother of Zakir Hussain. This meeting completely changed their Music into ‘A fusion of Nordic ice and Indian spice’. To quote from their website, Mynta’s music is “a lovely mix of Indian classical, African and Latin-American rhythms, Arabic sounds and Scandinavian Folk Tradition”. Quite eclectic!
Their last album Meetings in India was released in 2009 and presented below are some of the tracks off that album. The album can be bought online here and here.
