INDIA ALBA

Saturday 30th Jun 2012

India Alba represent a collaboration between two Indian and two Scottish musicians who combine Indian classical and Scottish traditional backgrounds to create a unique sound. Since their debut album Reels and Ragas, they have developed their music to reflect the broad common ground between their traditions. Many raga gats (themes), particularly those from the borders of the Himalayas, have close relatives in the melodies of the Scottish highlands and islands, and for both of them the drone sounds of the bagpipes or the tampura play an important part in the music. Recent performances have included the Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow, and the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games. Featuring Ross Ainslie on pipes, whistles and cittern.
