THE SOUND LOUNGE

Ahimsa reflects on Gandhi’s writings on non-violence, showcasing the inspirational Sarangan Sriranganthan and the brilliant Bobby Singh in an innovative, contemporary context with the inventor of the airsticks Alon Ilsar. It has been developed with the assistance of an Australia Council Fellowship and features excerpts from Gandhi’s writings translated into Sanskrit by Chris Whiteman and Vasudevaycharya.

The Sandy Evans Trio with Bobby Singh will present their “…masterfully performed fusion of jazz and Indian classical musics with a sprinkling of other influences from across the globe” (Cummins, 2015). Featuring soulful, melodic improvisations and stunning tabla and drum exchanges, this is music to lift the spirit and nourish the soul.
