Firedance Video
Tuesday, 04 April 2006
See the video of “Firedance” which was my first collaboration with musicians from another musical tradition – The Toronto Tabla Ensemble.  The video is described as an “extraordinary collaboration bringing together the two explosive styles of Kathak and Flamenco dance.”

Recently I googled myself and misspelled my name (nicholas) to see if there were any references to some of the work I’ve done in the past.  Surprisingly, I found (and saw it for the first time!!) the video of “Firedance” which was an “extraordinary collaboration bringing together the two explosive styles of Kathak and Flamenco dance.” The featured dancers in this video are Joanna de Souza and Esmeralda Enrique.  This project was my first collaboration with musicians from another musical tradition – The Toronto Tabla Ensemble.  Ritesh Das and I composed this piece together - I simply added the guitar parts to some rhythmic patterns – and a collaboration was born!  We performed it for Joanna and Esmeralda at various venues and then recorded it for the “Firedance” CD that received a juno nomination in 2000.  The video was shot at a studio and outdoors in the Scarborough Bluffs.
