Holiday In Madras – Ed DeGenaro


Born and raised in Germany, the once cello studying musician took a tangent by picking up the guitar and the rest, as they say, is history. It is reiterated on “Holiday In Madras”, the title track of an album of the same name, as Ed has teamed up with musicians across the globe to create a largely instrumental track that provides abundant opportunity to the multi-faceted instrumentalist to showcase his talent. But the song would not be complete without the voice of Ujjayinee Roy, who is formally trained in Hindustani Classical music, which links the crossover between psychedelic music and Eastern sounds. Ed certainly manages to bridge the gap between the two worlds on this all-too-brief track, shuffling between playing what appears being simple in some instances but, at other times, utilizing the full reign of the sound possibilities through his marvellous instrument playing talent. Nevertheless, for me, incorporating vocals and a chorus that manage to lock into a repeated chant is certainly the unexpected highlight of “Holiday In Madras”.
