Easter Monday 1st April, at Rhosygilwen will be the Welsh Premier of an award winning East-West musical collaboration featuring British born Indian sarod player Soumik Datta and Austrian percussionist Bernard Schimpelsberger . Their multi media show, The Circle of Sound, takes you on a breath taking audio-visual musical journey across India to Europe. Critics, no less famous than Anouska Shankar, have been bowled over and sold out shows in London, Berlin and Mumbai have made this one of the most talked about performances of the last year. Circle of Sound is the combined work of Soumik Datta (28), a young British composer and one of the most acclaimed Sarod (muscular plucked Indian string instrument) players of his generation. Son of film director Sangeta Datta and trained by the legendary Sarod Maestro Pt. Buddhadev Das Gupta, they have provided for him a solid foundation as a performer. He collaborates with percussionist Bernhard Schimpelsberger who plays the drumkit “like a tabla virtuoso”. A unique drummer & percussionist in his own right he easily blends western groove drumming and complex Indian rhythms in his innovative drumming style. Having studied Indian rhythm with Tablamaster Pandit Suresh Talwalkar in India and Percussion legend Trilok Gurtu, Bernhard plays a customized hybrid drumkit which enables him to push the boundaries between tradition and progress. As a special celebration to mark this first visit to Wales by these musicians, Nigerian beat poet and playwright Inua Ellams joins them as a guest for their show. An award winning poet and performer and a writer with a style influenced as much by classic literature as by hip hop, by Keats as it is by MosDef. The evening brings Britain’s most compelling musicians and performers to our stage in rural Wales. Supporting the evening is also Pembrokeshire based fiddler Henry Sears, and accordionist George Whitfield. The best Kolkatta curry can also be booked before the show which commences at 8pm. Tickets available online at www.rhosygilwen.co.uk or at the box office on 01239 841387. Extra tickets have now been issued for this show.
