Two extraordinary musicians, Sangeet Mishra and Shivam Rath, are coming together for their Soul Sangeet tour with a new style concept of Indian Classical music - sounds to heal the soul.
Sangeet means sound or music in Sanskrit and is also the name of Sangeet Mishra, master of the Sarangi, an ancient Indian violin, who hails from eight generations of Sarangi players from Varanassi, India. He previously performed in Kempsey with acclaimed Tibetan musician Tenzin Choegyal.
Shivam Rath blends a unique 22 string slide guitar/sitar gliding with a crystal ball. His fusion instrument symbolises a cross culture of harmony in sound and music. Only one year ago, Shivam and singer Mico Sundari enchanted the Kempsey audience with their beautiful combination of sounds.
Sangeet and Shivam are accompanied on Tabla by Massimo Bidin, originally from Italy and now living in Melbourne, an upcoming tabla player and world music percussionist. Last year he played in Kempsey with Shivam and Mico.
This event incorporates different musicians, instruments, bridging the gap between world and local music thus linking with a wider world music culture.
Tickets: $25 pre-booked, $30 at the door.
