Soumik Datta & Jeannin - 'The Love Between Us'


The BBC Singers and Chief Conductor Sofi Jeannin present a programme celebrating the rich heritage of Indian classical music with Soumik Datta, alongside the work of Bach. The concert is set to take place on Friday 21st October at the Milton Court Concert Hall - tickets are available here

Written for the same western orchestration as Bach’s triumphant Magnificat with sitar and tabla, Reena Esmail’s This love between us is a piece about unity. Its seven movements juxtapose the words of seven major religious traditions of India, and specifically how each of these traditions approaches the topic of unity and kindness.

The texts come either straight from canonical religious writings or from poets who write through the lens of their religion. At the heart of the programme is the world premiere of Soumik Datta’s BBC Commission, weaving Indian classical music, Bengali folk, Tagore and Partition songs with his own compositions about migration and identity.
