UK, GLOUCESTERSHIRE - The Unstruck Sound: An informance, K. Sridhar and Jesse Bannister, St Laurence Church, Shambles, High Street, Stroud GL5 1JL, 09 Jul 2022

Master musicians K. Sridhar (sarod) and Jesse Bannister (saxophone) offer a unique combination of performance and information on “the Unstruck Sound.” They will perform Indian raga, including improvising together and then will open the floor for questions and answers. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to listen with your heart more than your head! The aim is to foster an internal understanding of classical Indian raga, how it relates to the yoga of sound and how it can be adapted for contemporary composition and improvisation. This is a rare opportunity to engage with wonderful music resonating round the sacred space of St Laurence church.

K. Sridhar was born into an Indian musical family and trained in classical Indian music with the sarod from the age of five years. The sarod is a fretless instrument that can produce continuous the slides between notes which are so important in Indian music. Sridhar was the youngest ever member of Ravi Shankar’s orchestral group and started performing at the early age of 25. He lives in Stroud and teaches internationally.

Jesse Bannister is a world leading Indian Classical saxophonist, composer & educator. Jesse’s musical credits include the Halle Orchestra, Talvin Singh, Aruna Sairam and Pt. Ajoy Chakraborty. Jesse is a unique and groundbreaking musician and he creates music to bring people back into a place of harmony.
