Kuru Circus are a well known band from India. The current tour set now includes brand new material from band members IMFL and Ari Jayaprakash’s unreleased albums. Having played and toured together for over half a decade now, the shows includes live art and projections.
Beside Ari Jayaprakash from Bangalore and IMFL from New Delhi, Kuru Circus & Orchestra ensemble constitutes other guest artists who feature periodically on tour.The current tour features Sandeep Madhavan (The Burning Deck) and Shayne Ballantyne from Goa. Kuru Circus was initially conceived as a performance art project which largely incorporated soundscapes to the graphic novel – ‘The Kuru Chronicles’ by Ari Jayaprakash and Anisha Sridhar . However, over the last couple of years, the music has expanded into other songs and soundscapes. These tracks will be released separately, following the new album from the band, later this year.

A TALK WITH MICHAEL EDWARD EDGERTON
We would like to invite you to an artist talk with Michael Edward Edgerton
Michael Edgerton is at the forefront of vocal exploration by extending the technical and expressive capabilities of voice through the use of voice science and psychoacoustics. This approach has earned Mike considerable renown for those interested in the present and future of modern (experimental) voice. As a composer, Michael’s music coalesces diverse influences such as European avant-garde, American experimentalism, and world music into contexts that are informed by scientific models and metaphors. His artistic mission is to liberate those sounds that otherwise remain in danger of being overlooked or going unheard. Michael has received prizes for his compositions, including in 2007, the prestigious Kompositionspreis...
A TALK WITH THE SIX TONES
We would like to invite you to join an artist’s talk of The Six Tones
Free entrance. Register at https://goo.gl/forms/sAEExL5HKA7c1qB82

Traditional Vietnamese music is closely related to theatre and its musical forms draw highly on the tonal structure of the language. Obviously, a text set to music cannot have any melodic structure but the melodic lines must follow the tones that give the words their meaning....
