  • The father of modern Asian electronica music will be joining Tom Rogerson at St Marys Church at the Woodbridge Ambient Music Festival weekend on Sunday 25th Sept. Doors open at 2pm. The world-renowned tabla player, best known for creating an innovative mix of Indian Classical Music and Drum and Bass, has worked with and remixed many artists including Madonna, Massive Attack, Blondie, Bjork, Ryuichi Sakamoto and John Martyn. In 2014 Talvin was awarded the OBE for his service to the music industry.
  • He will be joining pianist Tom Rogerson who worked with Brian Eno (known as the father of ambient music) on the beautiful album ‘Finding Shore’ - An album that may evoke a familiar feeling to those from Suffolk. Tom says improvisation ‘taps so directly into the subconscious … that chance meeting with Eno and subsequent conversation about the Suffolk landscape did find its way into 'Finding Shore'. "I do totally hear it, I'll listen and think 'oh that sounds like the bells at Woodbridge, that's the birds, the wind rustling in the reeds'. I think it permeates my music, and Brian's ambient records.”
  • Tom and Talvin will be duetting at the afternoon concert and Viola da Gamba player Liam Byrne, who was recently commissioned by the Victoria and Albert Museum to create a sound installation for their new Courtyard Gallery, will be opening the afternoon with the hauntingly beautiful cello of Clare O’Donnell
