25 Sep Aranmula Album Launch in India
Leah has just returned to Australia after a three month collaborative project working in Kerala, South India in early 2009. During this time she performed extensively with the Nada Laya ensemble – an innovative collective based in Kerala, South India featuring acclaimed musicians from India, Australia, France and England.
In January 2009 she made her Arangettam (debut performance) in carnatic music and composed and produced the album ‘Aranmula’ in collaboration with British artist Lucy Hudson. Aranmula features outstanding performances from carnatic musicians in a rich sonic landscape ranging from hydrophone recordings deep in the pamba river to pilgrims chanting at dusk in the Aranmula temple. The album was released on Triveni Records in March 2009 and is currently pending a digital international release.
The TRIVENI label is a new organisation dedicated to supporting and promoting innovative collaborations between renowned and emerging artists in an intercultural context. Find out more information about Triveni on the following website www.trivenirecords.com and order a copy of Aranmula.
