Soumik Datta & Bernhard Schimpelsberger
In a groundbreaking collaboration, Soumik Datta on Indian Classical Sarod unites with Bernhard (aka Taalis) on Drums. A unique sound world that brings together ancient and modern cultures, this is a contemporary duet showcasing two young virtuosos, their command over their instruments and their ability to communicate through evocative new music.
Soumik Datta is a torchbearer of the fretless Indian lute: Sarod. Classically trained by legendary Pt. Buddhadev DasGupta. he later graduated from Trinity College of Music. Austrian-born percussionist Bernhard Schimpelsberger (aka Taalis) plays the Western drum kit like a tabla virtuoso and seamlessly blends Indian and Western rhythms into a unique drumming style.
