Join us at the Bridge of Dreams world premiere.
Over two years in the making, and spanning two countries, Bridge of Dreams premiered to a sold-out crowd at Sydney Festival in January 2019. Bringing together Hindustani vocals and a jazz big band for the first time ever, Bridge of Dreams thrilled audiences with a fiery bridging of the divide between two established but vastly different musical traditions.
Award winning saxophonist Sandy Evans lead a brilliant collaboration between leading Australian and Indian musicians. Featuring 22 artists on stage, this is a glorious exchange of ideas between Australian jazz and the rich Indian musical palette.
Featuring the sublime voice of internationally-renowned Indian singer Shubha Mudgal, the stellar energy and excitement of 17-piece super-collective Sirens Big Band; the sophisticated rhythms of one of India’s finest tabla players, Aneesh Pradhan, performing alongside Australia’s preeminent tabla player, Bobby Singh; stunning solos from harmonium virtuoso, Sudhir Nayak and breathtaking improvisations from Sandy Evans – this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear the very best in contemporary music created by culturally and gender diverse musicians.
In the space between two worlds, magical, colourful and musically thrilling things happen.
