Event description

Description

Shared Values is a festival of South Asian art music, contemporary, classical & traditional that seeks to showcase the achievements of non-South Asian musicians who have wholeheartedly adopted the aesthetic values of this music and emerged as accomplished performers. We believe that the breadth and depth of these artists’ with their adoptive musical culture can only be put in perspective when they are given an opportunity to share a platform with leading indigenous performers. This is a festival to project that South Asian music is universal, welcoming and inclusive.


John Baily and Veronica Doubleday

Together John Baily and Veronica Doubleday have dedicated their life’s work to the music and people of Afghanistan, and have actively supported Afghan music and musicians throughout the last 35 years of conflict. John is Emeritus Professor of Ethnomusicology and Head of the Afghanistan Music Unit at Goldsmiths, London University. Between 1973 and 1977 he and

Veronica lived in Afghanistan, mostly in Herat, where they undertook detailed research on the local musical traditions. In order to understand Afghan music culture, they studied with local musicians and became skilled performers in their own right. John plays the Afghan rubab and Herati dutar (types of lute), and Veronica sings Afghan traditional songs and plays the daireh (frame drum). John is recognised as a world expert on Afghan music, with many publications in print and cinematic form. Veronica is the author of the celebrated memoir Three Women of Herat, and other publications on Afghan music and poetry. As a duo or working with other noted Afghan musicians, John and Veronica have given concerts all around the world. Recent performance venues include Milan,

Sydney, Melbourne, Northampton (Massachussetts), Hamburg and Oslo, and numerous events in London.
