UJJAYA is a french ethno ambient musician with malagasy roots . Fond of indian raga and mysticism,yoga practitioner he actually made several trips to India to collect local musical instruments.

Why this name?
Ujjaya means victory .This word is whispered after having mastering a posture of yoga (i;e after having realize the posture including its subtle effects)
Do you play live?
I play live anywhere anytime, but mainly in gallery art or public library or any cultural place in general.Any place that I feel inspiring spiritually is the right place.I avoid bar.
I play at solstice.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Yes it is . A lot, because diffusion is easier, but giving a professional level product has become so easy that it has incresase drastically the number of artist.So a musician has to focus more on promotion and on searching live gig than on music
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Of course, just to have the time to focus on music

Before being an ETHNO AMBIENT one man project UJJAYA was a heavy-psychedelic prog rock band formed in 1993.
