Internationally acclaimed South Asian artists Sonia and Sarvar Sabri are performing in Hexham for one night only!
Salaam meaning ‘peace’ is Sonia Sabri Company’s latest stunning creation. This double-bill programme cleverly weaves a dialogue between live music and Kathak dance, celebrating harmony, inner –stillness and the simple bliss of being alive.
Salaam combines a rare treat of Tabla music by world-renowned maestro, Sarvar Sabri. Sarvar performs outstanding compositions of rhythm, with complexity and speed, through his unique finger work. The talented Shoma Dey joins Sarvar Sabri and performs endearing musical patterns on the harmonium accompanied with powerful vocals, which fuel and vibrates a resonance in the performance.Sonia presents sheer magic through expressive and rhythmic dance with live music. The audience are taken on a journey with Sonia’s poignant metaphorical narratives and through her command of intricate footwork; audiences will be in awe when watching Sonia’s eloquent gesture and rapid spins.
Salaam was originally created in response to the unrest around the world and aims to refocus and reminisce on all that is good. If you've ever wondered where beat-boxing and rapping originates from, this is a show that will reveal the roots and more wonders!
“Such an incredible musicality, it was impossible not to gaze in wonder and adoration... An uplifting crescendo of music and dance” (Dance Europe).
