Bridge of Dreams

Shubha Mudgal and Aneesh Pradhan | India/Australia

World Premiere

India’s rich musical palette meets top Australian jazz talent, in a collaboration that includes revered Hindustani singer Shubha Mudgal, jazz saxophonist Sandy Evans, tabla maestro Aneesh Pradhan and his disciple Bobby Singh, and classical harmonium player Sudhir Nayak. They are accompanied by 17-piece jazz super-collective Sirens Big Band, who showcase Sydney’s leading female and trans musicians.

With music composed by Shubha Mudgal, Aneesh Pradhan and Sandy Evans, and recorded between Mumbai and Sydney, the Bridge of Dreams project is all about exchanging ideas between world-class collaborators working in complex, ever-evolving genres. Bridge of Dreams spans everything from improvisational jazz to Hindustani, classical, Bollywood and Indipop.

“[Sandy Evans] surely ranks as one of the best contemporary jazz composers/musicians anywhere” – All About Jazz

“The Sirens are one of Sydney’s – if not Australia’s – treasures” – Australian Jazz
