King of Ghosts – Globe Music’s Latest Recording
Musician Soumik Datta’s original score will be released on Globe Music.
In the new recording, the composer and sarod player performs his reimagined score to the 1968 Satyajit Ray film, King of Ghosts, with the City of London Sinfonia, featuring percussionist Cormac Byrne and conducted by Bill Barclay.
Audiences have marvelled at the explosive film score which was played by orchestras all over the world in 2017 and finally arrived in the candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse in June with two evenings of live music that formed part of our Festival of Independence.
The performances were later recorded in the same space, in high-quality studio conditions, recapturing the intimacy and vibrancy of the original performances.
From Friday 5 January, King of Ghosts will also be available to buy and download via other outlets.
