Ansuman Biswas and Guests – Concert

part 1

The performance was a re-imagining of some Tagore songs in a universal, trans-national context. The Bengali poetry was refracted through a lens made up of European free improvisation, Western orchestral music and Amharic song.

The ensemble comprised:
Ansuman Biswas – musical direction
Guillaume Viltard – bass
Ian Smith – trumpet
Marlies van Gengelen – oboe
Haymanot Tesfa – voice
