King Of Ghosts CD
Soumik Datta Arts and City of London Sinfonia
Sarod virtuoso Soumik Datta joins forces with City of London Sinfonia and Shakespeare's Globe with an ecstatic original score for iconic filmaker Satyajit Ray's 1968 masterpiece, King of Ghosts.
Globe Music is a true reflection of live acoustic music creation today, capturing the intimacy of music creation but allowing for global dissemination that maintains artists and performance at the centre of the experience. The label will not be guided by artificially separate silos of genre, but by special collaborations and musical tories that arch across all centuries and styles. This venture from Shakespeare's Globe complements and furthur expands the venue's commitment to expanding into new musical territories including the Playhouse's Concerts by Candlelight, musical luminaries composing for productions, new collaborations with major ensembles, hybrid music/dramatic productions and international work, all alongside digital tools such as the Globe Player and a revitalised shop.
King of Ghosts is the fourth release from this new label.
Recorded in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at Shakespeare's Globe.
