An Inner Voice by Kobini Ananth
and Yarlinie Thanabalasingham
Kobini Ananth – vocals
Yarlinie Thanabalasingham – vocals
Sanjurran Keerthikumar – mridangam
Two young, talented and upcoming vocalists come together to create an innovative piece experimenting with a notion rarely used within Carnatic music, harmonies. Pulling away from improvisation with a focus more on composition, An Inner Voice allows the artists to explore their individual identities, ideas and journeys.
Perseverance by Jonathan Mayer
Jonathan Mayer – sitar
Steve Tromans – piano
Tymoteusz Jozwiak – drums
Mitel Purohit – tabla
A dialogue between Indian classical and Western instrumentation, Perseverance explores the vulnerability of hope in a world embroiled in harsh severity. Keen to explore this theme, composer and sitarist Jonathan Mayer insists that “Music should allow you to think about the world around you, not just sound pretty.” He hopes the new work encourages more musicians to step forward to explore new forms of expression through the rich tradition and heritage of Indian classical music.
