Spiritual string duo Balladeste on this A World in London!
Synchronicity takes on a new meaning when hearing Balladeste’s circle of trust, strings, and sound. Where South Indian violinist Preetha Narayanan begins, British cellist Tara Franks ends, except there isn’t a beginning or ending and we get blissfully immersed in their circular empathy. Both women are classically trained, but now running free & boundless, having forged a unique partnership over ten years, weaving in and out of each other’s voices as musicians and composers. They converse fluidly from string to string, undulating through time and space, drawing listeners inside their melodic boudoir, and melting the universe into a single entity. Balladeste’s debut album Relic is available on Bandcamp and iTunes now, plus a CD of devotional songs is already in the pipeline as a follow up. Listen out for that as it’ll be sung via violin and cello through one perfect voice called Balladeste. www.balladeste.co.uk
