Ceumannan - Footsteps 2

Part of New Music Biennial

Experience a meld of traditional Gaelic song and North Indian Raga in this piece commissioned by ATLAS Arts, bringing together contemporary sound artist Jason Singh with Skye-based Gaelic musician Anne Martin, as they interweave contemporary rhythms and acoustic sounds, with the struggles of culture and identity pertinent to both of their roots.

The work is a continuation of Ceumannan – Footsteps, which explores the struggle for land use experienced by both the Highlanders of Scotland and communities of Northern India, and emphasises the commonality and creativity of human experience.

Jason and Anne also form new collaborations with Indian Sharat Chandra Srivastava on violin and Gyan Singh playing tabla.
