Following the great success of the first Roots of Fire project earlier this year, we are very pleased to announce Roots of Fire part II. This project supported by the Bagri Foundation and Arts Council England will see the creation of a new piece of music, a fusion of eastern and western musical traditions for sarod, tabla and orchestra.
This piece will be jointly composed by master of sarod Amjad Ali Khan in collaboration with conductor David Murphy, and with musical material produced by children aged 10-11 in a large scale education project of school workshops across Luton, Slough and Leicester this autumn.
Amjad Ali Khan & Sinfonia Verdi will perform this ground-breaking new work fusing the musical traditions of east and west on the following dates:
Friday 10 November, 7:30pm: Luton Library Theatre. Book here.
Saturday 11 November, 7:30pm: Curve at Slough. Book here.
Monday 13 November, 7:30pm: Peepul Enterprise, Leicester. Book here.
