Anoushka Shankar – Shiraz: A Romance of India

NCH, Saturday 6th April 2019

Anoushka Shankar – Shiraz: A Romance of India with live score.

Sitar master Anoushka Shankar celebrates the majesty of the Taj Mahal with the live score to the film Shiraz. Shiraz tells the story behind the construction of the Taj Mahal. It's a tale of love and undying devotion, following Shiraz, the building's designer, and his childhood sweetheart, the princess who became the Empress Mumtaz Mahal – to whom the mausoleum was dedicated.

Taught by her father, the celebrated Ravi Shankar, a pivotal figure in the popularisation of the sitar. She continues to open up new possibilities for this instrument and has collaborated with musicians as diverse as MIA and Herbie Hancock. Anoushka's artistic output increasingly seeks to reflect her impassioned support of women's rights and social justice and her most recently released album, Land of Gold, was written in response to the humanitarian crisis of displaced people.

Church – The Good Friday, Meat / Sex / Booze / Rave

Button Factory

Church - The Good Friday, Meat / Sex / Booze / Rave. James, Dave and Kyle started Church. Church was a party where you could be who you want, kiss who you want and do what you want. It was the complete opposite of the actual church. After a hiatus, they returned for a series of one off parties. Church – The Reunion was too much fun that there was no way that they would not throw one more party for the hundreds of sinners that turned up to repent. This time around they're back on the holiest of nights, Good Friday, and hosting the inaugural MEAT / SEX / BOOZE / RAVE. Once again, James,
