  • Asian Arts Agency is delighted to present New Soundz Festival, a celebration of contemporary South Asian music, in collaboration with Arnolfini in Bristol. The event is set to unfold from 10th to 12th November 2023, promising an unforgettable auditory experience. 

    Arnolfini, a long-standing supporter of South Asian arts and a leading arts venue in Bristol, will host this dynamic music festival. New Soundz aims to showcase the vivacity of contemporary South Asian music through live performances and immersive spaces. 

    The festival starts on Friday, November 10th, with a captivating performance by beatboxer and sound artist, Jason Singh, in collaboration with tabla player Aref Durvesh, multi-instrumentalist Tamar Osborn, and keys player,  Al MacSween. This performance promises to explore a broad spectrum of soundscapes, drawing inspiration from Indian classical ragas, jazz, ambient, avant-garde hip hop, dub, and the natural world. Jason Singh’s ability to craft immersive soundscapes, drawing from nature’s diverse sounds, has earned him the moniker “the human sampler” by BBC Radio 6 Music. 

     On November 11th, New Soundz will present a new work titled ‘Mone Rekho’ (meaning ‘remember’ in Bengali) by Soumik Datta Arts. Performed by sarod player and composer Soumik Datta, this immersive concert layers ragas, voices, spatial audio, and memories to pay homage to the past, present, and future of Indian music. 

    The festival will also feature the remarkable British sitar virtuoso, Roopa Panesar, who will unveil the latest ragas from her 2022 album, “Subha”. The album is a celebration of Morning Ragas, portraying contemplative melodies that gradually build from the gentle hues of dawn to the light of day. 

    Jaswinder Singh, Director of Asian Arts Agency, expressed excitement about producing the inaugural edition of this contemporary and new music festival. The festival aims to introduce Bristol to contemporary South Asian artists and incorporate immersive sessions and workshops to truly engage audiences with the festival atmosphere. 

     Alongside the artist performances, attendees can look forward to captivating discussions with the performers and workshops. During these sessions, artists will provide insights into their journeys and shed light on the creative processes that shaped their recent masterpieces.
