Yerlan Ryskali, from Kazakhstan, sings traditional songs from his country while accompanying himself on the dombura, a long-necked lute. Arnaud Eurin is a French sitar player. As a child he became fascinated by the instrument after seeing the virtuoso Ravi Shankar at work during the Bangladesh benefit concert. From then on, he has immersed himself in Hindustani music in India and studied under traditional masters. The Sicilian-Belgian percussionist Carlo Strazzante concentrated first on western music before falling under the spell of the classical music traditions of other regions. He can play an array of instruments from the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East and North Africa, but is particularly proficient on the tabla. Together, Eurin and Strazzante will perform a set of music from Pakistan.
