ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From the Ganga to the Tay is an epic poem by Bashabi Fraser, which is an imagined conversation between the two rivers, the Ganges of Indian and the Tay of Scotland. In Edinburgh on August 9, 2011, we performed the poem at the Gorky Parrish Church. The hypnotic charm of the rivers was brought alive by actor and poet, Chrys Salt on the Ganga, storyteller and writer, Donald Smith on the Tay, with Michael Braudy on violin weaving ragas and Scottish tunes together. Videos by Kenny Munro, co-author of the book, were projected above us on a screen. We had a warm reception, and it was a magical evening for the performers and the audience. We would like to share the evening with you in this recording.
