RBMA TO BRING JAPANESE HOUSE MUSIC NINJA SOICHI TERADA & WEIRD TOGETHER TO INDIA
02 August 2017

Everyone plays video games, but there are a very few who appreciate the kickass background scores they have. If you belong to the latter lot, we’ve got BIG news for you. Heading to home turf this month are Japanese house music ninja Soichi Terada, the guy who created the soundtrack for popular video game Ape Escape, as well as DJ and radio host Nick Dwyer and his duo Weird Together, known for seamlessly blending Ghana’s contemporary club music to dance music from the Caribbean and South America.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A multi-city tour along with Red Bull Music Academy sessions, the artists are scheduled to perform from 16-19 August 2017 in Mumbai, Bangalore and New Delhi. Nick Dwyer’s critically acclaimed documentary Diggin’ In The Carts, which focuses on the global impact of Japanese video game music, will be screened during the Red Bull Music Academy Sessions. Attendees will be given a chance to experience what a day at the academy actually feels like, with the exchange of ideas and lectures from the maestros.

 

A world-travelling series of musical workshops, Red Bull Music Academy has already touched down at Tokyo, New York, Melbourne, Cape Town, Paris, São Paulo, and Montréal—and India’s next on the itinerary. The Academy will head back to Berlin to celebrate its 20th anniversary in October 2018. Interested music makers from across the world can submit their demo of no longer than 30 minutes and apply for training at the Red Bull Music Academy in Berlin in 2018. Applications are open until 4 September 2017.
