Performed by Anne Martin, Jason Singh, Sharat Chandra Srivastava, Gyan Singh and Joe Harrison. A synthesis of traditional Gaelic song and North Indian Raga, this piece interweaves contemporary rhythms and acoustic sounds with the struggles of culture and identity pertinent to both of the artists’ roots. The work is a continuation of Ceumannan – Footsteps which explores the struggle for land use experienced by both the Highlanders of Scotland and communities of Northern India, and emphasises the commonality and creativity of human experience.
Jason and Anne said: “We are delighted to be able to develop and continue our collaborations with Sharat Chandra Srivastava and Gyan Singh from India which might not have been possible without the help from the PRS foundation. Music has no borders and can draw people together from all cultures with stories and song. We feel the celebration of commonality and diversity is crucial in today’s world.”
