Universal Notes: A Musical Collaboration Between India and the UK

The Philharmonia Orchestra and Darbar have collaborated on an exciting cross-cultural music project called Universal Notes. The new piece was created in a year of workshops in India and the UK and will premiere at Darbar Festival on 16 Sept 2016. Taking inspiration from India’s raga mode of melody, the project moves away from jamming and ‘fusion’ styles, with an ambition to create music that brings two great classical traditions together equally. This film, shot on location in Bangalore and Mumbai, introduces the project and its participants.

The concert premiere of Universal Notes takes place at the Darbar Festival at Royal Festival Hall, London, Friday 16 September 2016, 6.30pm. philharmonia.co.uk/concerts/1632
