The serendipitous collaboration between Fife singer-songwriter James Yorkston
, English jazzer Jon Thorne
and Indian classical sarangi player and singer Suhail Yusuf Khan
richly exemplifies how (in Thorne’s words) “music operates without boundaries as a common international language and a source of cross-cultural unity.” New third album Navarasa: Nine Emotions
brings together influences and inspirations including Burns, Dick Gaughan, Sufi poetry and traditional ragas.
French-Cameroonian singer-songwriter Djana Gabrielle draws on time spent in Clermont-Ferrand, Paris and Glasgow, adding introspective dimension to her vibrant songs.
