Simon Thacker's Svara-Kanti in Edinburgh

Simon Thacker's Svara-Kanti
Symposium Hall is a new 158-seat church conversion venue in Edinburgh’s attractive Hill Square. Its mix of tradition and newness made a fitting venue for the final date in Svara-Kanti’s UK tour. Encoded in the name (svara = sound/notes and kanti = beauty) is the group’s raison d’être; the new territory to be found in the marriage of Indian and Western instruments and traditions.

Zakir Hussain © Jim McGuire
L'Orchestre Symphonique d'Inde et Zakir Hussain ont donné au Victoria Hall un moment de rêverie orientale totalement envoûtant... Chapeau bas à cet ensemble si neuf et qui a prouvé un sens de la cohésion et de la musicalité qui n'a rien à envier aux ensembles européens.
