Live Music by Soumik Datta, Cormac Byrne and Johannes Berauer

Soumik Datta / Sarod
City of London Sinfonia
Cormac Byrne / Percussion
Bill Barclay / Piano & Conductor

Immerse yourself in an atmospheric Indian soundscape as sarod star Soumik Datta and City of London Sinfonia perform a double bill of music for Indian film

Oscar-winning director Satyajit Ray's cult and off-beat film Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne, will be projected on a large screen with a reimagined live cinematic score (King of Ghosts) that features the haunting sounds of Soumik's sarod, Cormac Byrne's Irish folk rhythms and City of London Sinfonia.

The film, which follows the magical journey of Goopy and Bagha who are granted three wishes by the benevolent yet terrifying King of Ghosts, will take you on a breathtaking and magical journey across rural India – a vintage superhero film at its best.

Around India with a Movie Camera presents some of the earliest surviving film from India, as well as enchanting travelogues, intimate home movies and newsreels from British, French and Indian filmmakers, drawn exclusively from the BFI National Archive's early film collection. Soumik Datta again provides a live soundtrack with percussionist Cormac Byrne and Bill Barclay on piano.

Taking in maharajas and viceroys, fakirs and farmhands, as well as personalities such as Sabu and Gandhi, this compilation by award-winning filmmaker Sandhya Suri explores not only the people and places of over 70 years ago but asks us to engage with broader themes of a shared history, shifting perspectives in the lead up to Indian independence and the ghosts of the past.
