Mid-day Mantra: Indus

Loading Events

A free monthly series presenting music from India to uplift the spitit on Saturday lunchtimes

Escape the hurly-burly, as once a month sampad and Town Hall, Symphony Hall present outstanding Asian artists from the UK and the Indian subcontinent in relaxed, informal sessions. Chill out, take your shoes off, close your eyes and experience the richness and variety of India’s musical heritage.

This month features Indus.

Indus brings together four instrumentalists with roots in diverse musical genres, including Indian, Western & Jazz. Drawn together by a shared desire to create new approaches to music-making & to explore the full potential of their instruments, Indus skilfully navigate through uncharted & ever-changing musical terrain. The result is a unique sound that is a new musical language unto itself — one that reflects the group’s integrity, sensitivity and aspirational vision.

Indus is Henrik Linnemann on Flute, Shahbaz Hussain on Tabla, John Ball on Santoor & Mohamed Assani on Sitar

Following an intensive and creative period defining their sound, Indus embarked on their inaugural national tour of England in June 2009, with the support of the Arts Council England. The group’s performances have attracted vastly diverse audiences of all ages and cultures and the response to their music has been phenomenal.
