Petit Oiseau is the collaborative work of Jatinder Singh Durhailay and Suren Seneviratne. Petit Oiseau is a new musical endeavour, marrying classical Indian instrumentation such as the Dilruba played by Durhailay, unusually combined with Seneviratne’s digital synthesiser murmurings. Petit Oiseau’s performance will be accompanied with a living installation by Johanna Tagada-Hoffbeck
POOL is an autobiographical, conceptual narrative album by Nadeem Din-Gabisi that examines moments of trauma and happiness in childhood. It uses those moments as a diving board to explore mental health issues and coping mechanisms of many young black men, born in inner and outer London. The project questions and attempts to answer why some of these men swim, why some sink and why some others don’t enter the POOL. Their forthcoming project is produced by Beni Giles.
