Baliphonics (Sri Lanka)
About the event
The band was created in 2009, when the drummer, Samudi Suraweer, became fascinated with the music accompanying the rituals from Bali and Sri Lanka, and began his ethnomusicological research in this field. The make-up of the group is highly unusual. The band includes a modern, avant-garde duo – a drummer and a clarinetist, and two dancers and singers rooted in traditional music. The clash of the two musically distinct worlds gave birth to unexpected harmonies and intriguing discords, inviting the audiences for a remarkable sound journey.
