Simon Thacker’s Svara-Kanti
"Thacker’s own compositions here reflect his own far-ranging musical journey: witness the echoes of flamenco"
"One of the most important musicians of his generation"
One of Scotland’s most distinctive musical voices and four extraordinary performers tap into the Indian subcontinent’s folk, classical and spiritual traditions to create a gloriously unpredictable, rhythmically thrilling programme of original compositions and radical reimagining.
Showcasing the very latest developments in a journey that has seen guitarist/composer Simon Thacker tour major festivals in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, most recently for 60 000 people in Dhaka, and feature at Made in Scotland for three consecutive years, Simon Thacker’s Svara-Kanti also features singer Japjit Kaur, Britten Sinfonia leader Jackie Shave on violin, Polish cellist Justyna Jablonska and tabla master Sukhvinder Singh Namdhari.
