Featuring Kristina Fuchs and Friends (Switzerland) and Sharat Chandra Srivastava and Friends (India)
When: 7.30 pm
About the artists:
Kristina Fuchs: The singer with her kaleidoscopic voice juggles in the jungle of styles with mastery. At times, she sounds light and silvery, at times dark and velvety, at times crazy and joyful, but always musical and seducing. Determined and virtuoso, she might accompany herself with a loop-station (electronic tool that permits to sing multi-voiced) and a hang (a Bernese kind of steel-drum). She’s always looking for new challenges. The jazz-educated singer has lived in the Netherlands for more than twenty years. She has projects in various countries, mainly the Netherlands, Switzerland and Belgium.
Sharat Chandra Srivastava: Apart from performing and doing studio work Sharat has conducted masterclasses at the University of Edinburgh, Royal Scotland Academy of Music and Drama, University of Stratclythe, Glasgow, Scotland. He has also been teaching the Violin at the Gandharva Mahavidyalaya, New Delhi for over 10 years and has been regularly scoring music for documentaries for the past 20 years. Watch the violin virtuoso Sharat Chandra Srivastava, as he presents Indian ragas in collaboration with musicians.
