Bernhard Schimpelsberger (drums and cajón)
Gurdain Rayatt (tabla)
Pirashanna Thevarajah (mridangham)
Prattyush Banerjee (sarod)
This double bill concert comprises of a visionary percussion of brilliant Indian
rhythms by three great young maestros; Enjoy the journey of sounds from both north
and south Indian percussive influences pushing the boundaries of tradition and
modern beats. These dynamic musicians have performed alongside Ravi Shankar,
Nitin Sawhney, Anoushka Shankar, Bickram Ghosh, Talvin Singh, Susheela Raman,
Akram Khan to name a few.
The second half features Banerjee, a unique musician who has been successfully
multi-tasking as performer, music arranger, composer, researcher and instrument
designer. The sarod (lute) is notoriously difficult to play in tune due to its fretless
nature - unless of course it is in the hands of this great prodigious young maestro.
Accompanying him is one of the UK’s most exhilarating young tabla maestros,
Rayatt, from a strong tabla lineage.
