Strip away the surface features and jazz, electronica, Scottish traditional music and Indian classical music all share:

  • drone
  • groove & rhythm
  • collective and individual improvisation melodies and scales/raags
    vocal rhythmic patterns

In Common, led by Tom Bancroft, is a creative project that focuses on the common ground between Scottish music, jazz, Indian music and electronica. It starts with the bodhran and the tabla and a drone, adds Indian classical violin and improvising jazz guitar, and continues adding layers and voices from different traditions with fascinating results.

Featuring: Sharat Chandra Srivastava (violin), Gyan Singh (tabla), Tom Bancroft (bodhran & drums), Graeme Stephen (guitar & loops), Sophie Bancroft (voice), Gina Rae (voice).
