Music for the Mind and Soul: Tarang

20 Nov 2016 | 1pm

The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

Tarang has a new sound – and it’s unlike anything you might have heard before.  It defies genre, yet its roots are firmly entrenched in Indian classical music. Taking inspiration from music across the globe, Tarang’s new sound is emotionally rich and musically complex culminating in a sophisticated amalgamation of a wide spectrum of genres including jazz fusion, western classical and folk. The UK’s National ensemble for Indian music has always been at the forefront of experimentation in Indian music, and in 2016 Tarang has ripped up the ‘rulebook’ and has produced something truly astonishing, groundbreaking and soul-stirring.

Fresh from a self-imposed absence from the festival and touring circuit, the group returns with a brand new album, debuting their own new sound, and a fresh take on well-known and original compositions. Tarang’s music is rich, soulful, stylish and innovative and features an array of instruments, ideas and music produced by Milapfest. Moving beyond the boundaries of conventional labels, Tarang music is a surprising mix of influences and approaches, many of which are new to the field of Indian classical music. Featuring a line-up of top percussionists, singers and instrumental players, this is Indian music unlike you have ever heard!
Tarang will be debuting tracks from their innovative new album which will be launched in early 2017.
