Celtic Connections Presents: Soumik Datta & Bernhard Schimpelsberger: Circle of Sound and Chassol

The much-lauded partnership of London-born sarod player Soumik Datta and Austrian percussionist Bernhard Schimpelsberger – who studied tabla in India, adapting those techniques to his customised hybrid drumkit – Circle of Sound encompasses ancient ragas, urban beats, virtuoso improvisation and rock’n’roll appetite, in both delicate, atmospheric meditations and bravura rapid-fire workouts.

Deploying his unique audio-visual compositional technique, ‘ultrascore’, the French pianist Christophe Chassol’s latest album/concert project, Indiamore, features sights and sounds recorded on a visit to India, from traffic noise to an array of traditional musicians, as both backdrop and creative springboard for his inspired musical responses, also informed by jazz, pop, electronica and minimalism.
