Showcasing two of the finest and most dynamic classical Indian practitioners of their generation, Sounds of Bengal is a musical response, a travel log even, to Soumik and Arif's experiences while on tour in India and Bangladesh in January 2011.
"...As soon as Soumik started to play his sarod and Arif with his tabla, the audience were absolutely mesmerised. People were tapping their fingers, shaking their legs, nodding their heads or just listening in awe. Not only did their talents blend into a beautiful piece, but the chemistry between the two on stage was prominent too. The audience could really see the enjoyment and kick they get when playing together..."
