King of Ghosts

Soumik Datta & City of London Sinfonia

'Magical' ***** The Scotsman

In an evening of live cinematic music, virtuoso sarod player Soumik Datta and Irish folk percussionist Cormac Byrne give new life to two films, accompanied by Al MacSween on piano with City of London Sinfonia. Experience early films from India edited exclusively from the BFI National Archive by filmmaker Sandhya Suri under the banner Around India with a Movie Camera; then, after an interval, Oscar-winner Satyajit Ray’s cult, off-beat film Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne, with a reimagined score, the King of Ghosts.
