Soumik Datta is a British Indian composer and virtuoso player of the sarod – a 19 stringed fretless instrument from ancient Afghanistan and colonial India. He has collaborated with Beyonce, Jay Z, Bill Bailey, Nitin Sawhney, Anoushka Shankar and Talvin Singh, and has brought the ancient sarod into a global arena. In this New Meeting, he will be joined by Ayoze de Alejandro Lopez, a master percussionist from Gran Canaria. Together, they will explore how the sarod can work with Spanish and Latin percussion – in particular the sonorous cajon ‘box’, used widely in flamenco.
