PARADIYA - Beyond Light "Strings and Winds in Unison"
Having played classical music of north India and west Africa for many years, we decided to give our musical experiences a new direction.
This project, a unique collaboration between bansuri (Indian bambooflute) and kora (west African harp), we called "Strings and Winds in Unison".
Rooted in the traditions of Indian classical music and west African griot music, we aim to create our own original compositions, in which the bansuri and kora produce a unique blend. Enjoy the nourishing, meditative sound of Paradiya
