Songs for the Soul

Wed 30 October 2024, 7:30pm,
Stoller Hall

Manchester Camerata, with their Artistic Partner Rushil Ranjan, presents Songs for the Soul.


Songs for the Soul is a brand new composition by Rushil Ranjan, commissioned by Manchester Camerata, that fuses the sound of a Western Classical Orchestra with Carnatic Song. Carnatic music is widely considered to be the most ancient and pure form of music from the Indian subcontinent. With roots in deeply spiritual and Vedic traditions, it incorporates mathematical, rhythmic complexity, and raga to beautifully illustrate tales from Hindu mythology.


Rushil Ranjan is a multidisciplinary artist. His work in contemporary, Sufi, and classical music has earned him a reputation as one of the most distinctive and extraordinary musical voices around today. With his Orchestral Qawwali Project, Rushil has played the Albert Hall and toured to great critical acclaim.
