The Mukta adventure. The brainchild of Nantes-based bassist and Indian music enthusiast Simon Mary, Mukta was assembled in 1994, with trumpeter Geoffroy Tamisier, drummer Jean Chevalier, and sitarist Brigitte Menon. Mukta ("pearl" in Sanskrit), impressed fans of unusual musical hybrids everywhere with the release of their debut outing in 1999, "Indian Sitar & World Jazz" through Warner Jazz France (the first French act signed to the label). With its sparkling compositions and unusual arrangements, the album was a success in France, as well as in England, Canada, Greece and Israel.
