Riverside Ragas: ONE
ONE by Mithila Sarma
The veena is a South Indian stringed lute and one of the oldest instruments within South Asian music. Each individual veena is known to have its own tonal quality, style and timbre.
In ONE, Mithila Sarma, artistic director of zerOclassikal, experiments with an ensemble of vainikas (veena players) exploring and pushing the limits of the instrument’s unique bass tones, multi-octave sounds and rich gamakas (ornamented notes) in a programme of brand new work.
ONE is the latest work from zerOclassikal, a project that explores radical approaches to South Asian classical music, as well as providing a platform for the next generation of British South Asian classical talent.
Featuring: Mithila Sarma (Veena), Shyla Shanmugalingam (Veena), Pradeepa Sivasanthiran (Veena) and Abhiram Sahathevan (Miruthangam/Kanjira).
Presented with Sage Gateshead.
As part of GemArts Riverside Ragas series, tickets holders can also attend the pre-concert talk at 7pm, free of charge.
