United Sound Entertainment Presents:
Soumik Datta‘s album launch: JANGAL
Live at Oslo, Hackney
Soumik Datta is a musician, composer, television presenter and virtuoso player of the 19 stringed, fretless sarod. Born in India, brought up in London, he connects his Bengali roots with global strands and is considered ‘one of biggest new music talents in Britain’ (Vogue).
‘Jangal’ – is Soumik’s latest album, made in protest of deforestation and the climate change crisis. Bridging the world of Indian folk and contemporary music, Jangal is a vibrant tangle of influences combining Latin percussion, analogue synths and the Indian sarod that roar in protest of the ongoing wreckage of our planet. Blending ancient and digital aesthetics, Soumik’s powerful new, audio visual concert aims to spark conversations and raise awareness about climate change.
