This will be a unique musical evening and one that will see you crossing many of our social and cultural divides.
Dheeraj Shrestha is one of the finest exponents of tabla in the world. His playing will draw out your emotions as they do his as the rhythms seek out your soul. When combined with the raw earthy power of the didgeridoo the tabla will captivate you with its pulsing and ancient sounds.
Si Mullumby was a medical student before having a psychedelic epiphany in India on holidays in the middle of the night on Om beach. Here he heard the earth resonate with the sound of a didgeridoo and without ever having any interest whatsoever in the didgeridoo he realised his life purpose was to connect with people through music (Hey man, I dig it. I lived through the 60s). And that experience has resulted in Si developing into one of Australia's leading contemporary exponents of the didgeridoo.
So when one of Australia's leading contemporary exponents of the didgeridoo met up with Australia's most sought after tabla players the most original fusion of ancient sounds came into being.
Dheeraj and Si performed together for the first time at Woodford in 2011 and since then have toured Europe, Japan, USA, UK, Africa and Australia with their unique world music collaboration and have successfully built a world-wide fan base.
Come along and experience Australia's iconic wind instrument, the didgeridoo, share a remarkable percussive similarity with the sophisticated North Indian and Nepalese drums, the tabla and madal. Listen as the intricate Indian percussion meets the raw earthy power of the didgeridoo and join with the music as it transcends cultural boundaries and crosses time zones on a voyage delving deeply into your present moment.
The high-energy sounds of the didgeridoo and the spirituality of tabla will bring you to the present moment in a beat. A unique experience not to be missed.
Make sure you take up this special opportunity to engage with Dheeraj Shrestha and Si Mullumby and become part of this original fusion of ancient sounds.
