Amelia had undergone years of training in the Drupad tradition and I had studied the Khayal tradition. Both of us had composed raga-based works and had merged this ancient tradition with our own particular creative work outside the Indian forms. We began our collaboration with a commission from Sounds Bazaar, led by UK composer/performer, Francis Silkstone. I wrote a suite of pieces. Tarana In Hindol’, heard on this recording, was the concluding work. Silkstone plays the Baroque violin, Tatty Theo the Baroque cello and Bhavani Shakar the mridangam (South Indian drum).

She not only performs in traditional style, but has also taken Dhrupad into the field of contemporary music. In this second album for Navras the listener can appreciate her crystal clear voice in alap and bandish, as well as her interpretations of the compositions with their very lively and elaborate rhythmic cycle.
