More information about Harry Manx tickets
“Mysticssippi” blues man Harry Manx has been called an “essential link” between the music of East and West, creating musical short stories that combine the tradition of the blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas. He has created a unique sound that is hard to forget and deliciously addictive to listen to.
After playing the prestigious Montreal Jazz festivals numerous of times solo, the festival promoter asked Harry to put a band together for the 2012 show. That's how Harry’s World Affairs band developed, a culturally diverse collective made up of Indian vocalist Kiran Ahlawalia, African musician Yeshe on various instruments and Hammond organ player Clayton Doley from Australia.
It was with his new band line-up that Harry recorded his new studio album “Om Suite Ohm”, which features mostly original songs with the members of World Affairs. The album was produced by distinguished musician/ producer/ engineer Hans Christian (Daniel Lanois, Robbie Robertson) and recorded between Wisconsin and Australia.
Harry has already been nominated by the Canadian Music Awards as Songwriter Of The Year for his song “Carry My Tears”, featured on “Om Suite Ohm”. The album also contains an unusual cover of jazz giant John Coltrane’s song “ A Love Supreme”. This album is a step away from past Manx albums, and contains a more electric Bollywood feel to it. If you blend Indian folk melodies with slide guitar, add a sprinkle of gospel and some compelling grooves , you get a sound that goes down easy and leaves you hungry for more. The sort of sound that only Harry Manx can make.
