Songs of the Dawn

Constantinople et Dhruba Ghosh

WHEN PERSIAN CLASSICAL MUSIC MEETS THE GREAT HINDUSTANI TRADITION

Constantinople travels along the great silk trade routes to India and recreates a world of sound where echoes of the intense musical dialogue between Iran and Northern India take us to new imaginary realms. The sublime poems of Kabîr (1440-1518) and Amir Khusrow (1253-1325) come to life through the musicians’ inspired singing and improvisation. Guests from India, Dhruba Ghosh – one of the world’s greatest sarangi virtuosos – and Ravi Naimpally on the tabla, will be joining Constantinople, along with Sandeep Bhagwati who has composed a new work especially for this concert.

If you want the Truth,
I’ll tell you the truth:
Listen to the secret sound,
The real sound,
Which is inside you.

                 – Kabîr
