Event Details

A breathtaking, unique cinematic collaboration between Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the Edinburgh Mela, and rising world music star Soumik Datta, who has worked with Beyoncé, Nitin Sawhney, Talvin Singh and Bill Bailey. The King of Ghosts is a brand new score inspired by the classic Indian film Gupi Gayen, Bagha Bayen, by Oscar-winning Bollywood master Satyajit Ray. The King Of Ghosts weaves Indian folk rhythms and rich orchestral textures into a gorgeous, atmospheric experience, as live scenes from the film are projected above the musicians and the audience is transported into a fairytale.

Soumik Datta is fast being recognised as one of the biggest new music talents in Britain. His work combines guitar riffs with Indian melodies, funk and electronica and he is a regular at Celtic Connections and Edinburgh Mela.
