Simon Thacker's Svara-Kanti
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Scotland's visionary guitarist/composer returns with an astonishingly powerful new trio line-up of his award-winning Indo-Western ensemble, with Raju das Baul, mesmerising exponent of Bengal's mystical Baul folk tradition and possessor of one of the most soulful voices on the world stage, and tabla master Sarvar Sabri. Simon creates stunning new soundworlds in a seamless melding of tradition with innovation and imagination. 'Simon Thacker is, in my opinion, one of the most important musicians of his generation' ***** (ThreeWeeks, 2014). 'What Thacker and his team have done is create their own musical tradition' (Hindu).
