Matthew Barley (cello) with Soumik Datta (sarod) and Ustad Sukhvinder Singh (tabla)

‘I wish more people would think about music the way Matthew Barley does.’ The Times

One of classical music’s great communicators and collaborators – not to mention cellist extraordinaire – Matthew Barley takes to the stage in the company of master tabla and sarod players Ustad Sukhvinder Singh and Soumik Datta to explore both Western and Indian works through performance and improvisation. Works by Bach, the Beatles, Tavener and Sultan Khan provide points of departure, as does Raag Bhairavi.

The tabla is the percussion instrument originating from the Indian subcontinent, and the sarod a 19 stringed, fretless instrument with a nomadic history spanning ancient Afghanistan, colonial India and modern-day global downloads. Expect a riveting and mesmeric evening…
