Co-creators of the album Hues of Imagination, they are now touring the UK together and sharing their knowledge of the art of improvisation across musical vocabularies. In this class, you will:
- Hear about the instruments and improvisational techniques of the course leaders: Swarupa on tabla and Melisa on Kamancheh
- Through discussion, meditation and practice, learn to co-create using collaborative improvisation
