One Hundred and Six Strings create fantastic soundscapes and mesmerising melodies. The fusion of traditional Indian rags with modern jazz creates a sound that is both meditative yet extremely exhilarating at the same time! The group are highly skilled at their chosen instruments and their use of improvisation provides sustaining interest and intricacy in the music. - Noah Burton

Bio

Two individuals. Two instruments. One hundred and six strings; strummed, hammered and interwoven.

This is where mind and metal entwine to create a dynamic experience within the ancient Indian classical frame. This exciting collaboration explores an innovative path; it is rising, falling, harmonising and syncopating, anchored by devotion and driven by imagination; breathing new life into a proud and vast tradition.

Kamaljeet Ahluwalia on Santoor (disciple of Pt Shivkumar Sharma) and Giuliano Modarelli on Guitar (disciple of Pt Buddadev Das Gupta) possess a tremendous passion and precision for their craft; a unique sound and bold attitude towards composition and improvisation.
