Be uplifted by the intertwining sounds of the sitar and the guitar, the piano and the percussion, the bass and the bansuri. Experience harmonious melodies of the voice, conversing with the drums, and listen for the response of the flute as the oboe calls.
As the world gets smaller, we are regularly touched by a plethora of cultures, peoples and lifestyles.
The Ismaili Community Ensemble (ICE) will draw from a range of cultures, merging East with West and the traditional with the contemporary.
Taking inspiration from the London Olympics 2012, ICE will join together with composer and producer Niraj Chag, musicians from the Orpheus Centre, a performing arts centre for young disabled adults, and members of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to explore the notion of pluralism in the society in which we live through the medium of music. The performance will be accompanied by a photographic exhibition reflecting this theme.
Celebrating Diversity promises to be a heart-warming experience for all.
