The World Is Sound

Svara-Kanti


Guitarist Simon Thacker‘s new Indian/Western group, Svara-Kanti builds on the achievements of the acclaimed Nava Rasa Ensemble. It combines music from diverse ancient Indian traditions, Indian classical music and Bollywood (from the Golden Age to AR Rahman) with contemporary Western classical and jazz sounds in a new large scale commission by great Indian composer Shirish Korde.

Also featuring the beautiful voice of my friend Japjit Kaur, celebrated Carnatic violinist Dr Jyotsna Srikanth and tabla master Sarvar Sabri, leading performers renowned for cross cultural exploration, Svara-Kanti combine their traditions to create new sounds and expression delivered with depth and virtuoso technique.
