Last night, while audiences were enjoying Tristan and Yseult outside in the Globe Theatre, we hosted an intimate concert of Indian film and music inside the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse as part of our Festival of Independence.

Talvin Singh OBE and Soumik Datta started the evening off with some breathtaking compositions on sarod and tabla. In the second half, Soumik was joined on stage by a string sextet from City of London Sinfonia and Cormac Byrne on percussion, to underscore Satyajit Ray’s cult film Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne. This original film score ‘King of Ghosts’ was played in perfect timing with the film to create beautiful witty moments and enhance the action.

Catch the final concert tonight at 8pm:
