The Dutch Indu Panday is one of the few dancers who specializes in both the South Indian classical dance BharataNatyam - one of the oldest classical dance disciplines of India - and Kathak, a North-Indian form that’s based on vivid storytelling. In this live session Panday is accompanied by musicians related to the Rotterdam Conservatory (Codarts), who play songs from the Kathak repertoire.

Composer and electronics specialist Yannis Kyriakides and guitarist Andy Moor (The Ex, Dog Faced Hermans) frequently collaborate with an assembly of pioneering projects. One happens to be Rebetika, an album that finds Moor and Kyriakides’ fractured take on traditional folk movements from Greece, exploring their unique tonal qualities.

South Korean jazz drummer and percussionist Sun-Mi Hong performs together with Scottish trumpet player Alistair Payne. This live session is mainly improvised, and with their combined spirit Hong & Payne inspire the listeners to close their eyes and imagine vivid sceneries and beautiful narratives.
