They did the soundtrack for The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Star Wars, featured in alternative rock band Oasis’ hit single Whatever and have even released tribute albums to bands such as Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. These are a few genres that the versatile London Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO) has dabbled in since its inception in 1932. And now, they’re performing in India during a ten-day tour.
LPO’s Renga ensemble, which collaborates with musicians from outside the classical mainstream, will perform Carnatic jazz that incorporates South Indian Carnatic music as well as ancient Indian folk melodies.
The Renga ensemble has collaborated with musicians from the Karnataka College of Percussion including vocalist Ramamani and percussionist T.A.S Mani.
