Beautiful ANIMALS AS LEADERS "Ka$cade" Sitar Cover by Rishabh Seen
We were first exposed to sitar shredder Rishabh Seen about a year ago with his cover of Animals As Leaders' "Tempting Time" and the follow-up "Wave of Babies." We've also seen Rishabh cover Meshuggah and release an original track with his project Mute the Saint.
Earlier this week, Gear Gods posted what I consider to be Rishabh's most beautiful cover yet, this time, again of Animals As Leaders for the track “Ka$cade.” Not only is the track well done, but the location of the shoot and the visual compliment the beauty of the music. Here's what he had to say about it:
“Indian music and instruments are very closely attached to the nature themselves, because these instruments are very much organic, dominantly hand-crafted and thus are very lively and raw as for how they sound and are made, and so is the Indian Classical music in which there are ragas (Melody/Scale) based on seasons, time of the day and different human emotions and moods. Hearing this AnimalsAsLeaders’s song called Ka$cade – It always made me feel like it was a call from the mountains, I could just play this song, close my eyes and just could clearly imagine myself being very close to nature and playing this musical piece because it feels so emotional and to me it feels like this piece breathes and makes you feel compelled and emotionally uplifted..I soon realised that what was in my head can be brought to existence and that’s what took me so long to get back with this cover after releasing my previous 4 covers.
I hereby want to acknowledge the entire team for making this possible – Chinmoy Sonowal,Vishesh Vikram Singh, Shashwat Kapoor, our families for bearing up with us being out at odd times and coming back at odd times and a lot of our friends who helped us with a lot though out the process.
This video was shot in ‘Dharamsala’ a place in Himachal Pradhesh (India).
I hope you all let the vibe of this piece of art hit and uplifts you as it did to me.
Enjoy the music and feel free to write/speak to me anytime!
Good vibes to all – Rishabh Seen”
