Flashback to Fès World Sacred Music Festival in May 2016 for which I conceived a Homage to India with Denis Teste, my partner of ECHO Collective. Thirty established maestros and torchbearers from Kolkata, Jodhpur, Jaipur, Mumbai, Chennai, Toronto, London... to highlight the living sacred heritage of India and its endless creativity!
In this framework, we invited and produced "The King of Ghosts" project - a live musical performance for the iconic film Goopy Gayen Bagha Bayen by Satyajit Ray (1969) composed and performed by the sarod player Soumik Datta and the percussionist Cormac Byrne.
Here is a short film to relate the story. Music springs from encounters...
1001 thanks to Souvid Datta & Nick Atkins.
