Tabla and String Quartet East meets West

This musical programme showcases the fusion of Western Classical music with Indian Traditional music, by combining the strings and tabla of the internationally renowned Dionysus Ensemble. 

Classical works and Bollywood music combine with modern Indian pieces to explore exciting re-imagining of timeless traditional sounds and the cross-continent collaboration of musical ideas. 

A virtuosic chamber ensemble with a string quartet at its core, The Dionysus Ensemble are equally at home on the concert platform, playing for events in both formal and informal settings, as well as providing music education projects. 

Appointed Ensemble in Residence for the Commonwealth Resounds, The Dionysus Ensemble performed for Her Majesty The Queen at the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey in March which was broadcast live by the BBC on Commonwealth Day. 

Since then they have performed for Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland at a private reception at Marlborough House and for the Royal Commonwealth Society at Spencer House. 

They have partnered with Jesuit Missions to deliver music education projects in schools on Climate Change and the Blue Charter, and are developing projects with several High Commissioners to share their music and expertise with musicians and young people around the Commonwealth.
