An amazing night with truly talented musicians
A simply superb night at the Royal Exchange in Manchester. Ordinarily a theatre in the round, the centre stage was set for a different set of theatrics and entertainment for this intimate event with Jason and Talvin Singh. We were treated a fine display of Talvin Singh's talent on the tabla. Followed by amazing breakbeats from Jason Singh. A true delight to hear and see.
We took ourselves up to a higher seating platform for the second half as our view was obscured by the most amazing symbols. The staff at the exchange were very accommodating and other audience members quickly followed suit. The second half was met with a shadowy hooded figure playing clarinet divinely weaving in and out of the shadows cast by the lights mixed in wonderfully with Talvin and Jadon. He revealed himself soon thereafter to be the very talented Arun Ghosh- another Manchester talent. Jason told funny anecedotes that smattered the evening, sharing warmth, humour and true awe for his fellow musicians.
Thrilled, exhilarated and grateful to have been present in the company of three true geniuses. Sheer talent, an ear for music and knowing how to take you on an incredible special journey of aural pleasure. Thank you all.
