Roots of Fire

Luton-based orchestra, Sinfonia Verdi, designed a marvellous continent and culture-spanning project: Roots of Fire, which culminated in concerts in Luton, Leicester and Slough. Children from the UK and India were involved in workshops that led to the creation of a new piece of music that fuses the musical traditions of Indian and western music. Children from Downside Primary School in Luton participated, as did renowned virtuoso sarod player, Amjad Ali Khan.
