One of the most intriguing, original and perfectly-balanced musical marriages between East and West yet achieved. Sangam is a ground-breaking collaborative work Michael Nyman leading Indian musicians which reflects both the commonalities and the differences between the Western experimental and Indian classical music traditions.
Sangam – a Hindi word meaning ‘a coming together’ or ‘meeting point’ – is the culmination of a two year musical odyssey by Michael Nyman which began with a month-long visit to India at the end of 2000. Initiated jointly by the Asian Music Circuit and the British Council with support from the Arts Council of England, Nyman’s brief was an exciting but challenging one: to create a ground-breaking collaborative work between a major figure in British contemporary composition and leading Indian musicians, which reflected both the commonalities and the differences between the Western experimental and Indian classical music traditions.
About the Artist
As one of Britain's most innovative and celebrated composers, Michael Nyman's work encompasses operas and string quartets, film soundtracks and orchestral concertos. Far more than merely a composer, he's also a performer, conductor, bandleader, pianist, author, musicologist and now a photographer and film-maker. Although he's far too modest to allow the description 'Renaissance Man', his restless creativity and multi-faceted art has made him one of the most fascinating and influential cultural icons of our times.
