When I was in Chennai, India, studying South Indian carnatic music in 2008, auto-rickshaws fascinated me.

Rickshaws are perfect for days where I'd schedule 3 lessons in the same day and need to reach them on time.

Rickshaws are perfect for concert hopping, on evenings when amazing concerts are presented back to back in different areas of the city.

Although they are quick and rather cheap (that is, if you know how to negotiate!) auto-rickshaws are noisy! But the noise turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as it would allow me to practice for my voice or rhythm lessons, with no one hearing me.

Alone in a rickshaw, with no teachers around, rehearsing melodies or rhythmical patterns would often drift off into free vocal improvisation. This composition, Sung in a Rickshaw, tries to recreate these moments where I would explore a stylistic fusion between these new musical elements and my personal way of understanding, hearing and singing music.
