Tapp / ONE - Music Double Bill

Tapp / ONE - Music Double Bill


Sounds of the East and West meet in this one off double bill of music at Kala Sangam. Featuring some of the country’s best female musicians, these performances put a fresh new take on classical music – both Western and South Asian.

Jazz North Northern Line artists for 2018-19, Täpp are passionate about bringing classical music into the modern age. Having trained at the Royal Northern College of Music, Rebekah Reid and Polly Virr play the violin and cello through electronic technology such as loop pedals to create unique and original music. The duo boasts a distinctive sound influenced by their love of classical music, minimalism, electronic dance, jazz, folk and world music.

ONE is the latest work from zerOclassikal and features an instrument that is a mainstay of Carnatic music, a South Indian stringed lute called a veena. In ONE, Mithila Sarma experiments with an ensemble of vainikas (veena players) exploring and pushing the limits of the instrument’s unique bass tones, multi-octave sounds and rich gamakas (ornamented notes). Alongside Mithila the performance features Shyla Shanmugalingam and Pradeepa Sivasanthiran with percussion by Abhiram Sahathevan.

This performance features a post-show discussion.
