Audiences will be transported into the supernatural world of The Three Seas – an international, cross-cultural ensemble that fuses West Bengal and Himalayan folk song with contemporary sounds from Sydney and Kolkata.
Soaring Baul vocals and majestic sounds from North Indian traditions are combined with Bengali beats and the deep groove of the baritone saxophone in an energetic, uplifting musical alchemy.
The remarkable members of The Three Seas were drawn together by their distinct and diverse background and their passion for creating music that resonates universally.
