HENRY KAISER Requiem For U. Shrinivas (September, 2014)


Henry Kaiser, live on a rooftop balcony in St. Petersburg, Russia, performing an improvised requiem for musician Uppalapu Mandolin Shrinivas, a trailblazing Indian composer and performer whose music has been championed all over the world by the likes of George Harrison, John McLaughlin, Nana Vasconcelos and countless others. The 45 year-old virtuoso mandolin player passed away the day before this taping, prompting Henry's gorgeous improvised tribute, recorded Sept. 20, 2014. Read about U.
