Shivoham offers a unique musical experience that is rooted in India but reaches widely through its contemplative nature and universal narrative.

Inspired by Shiva, the Indian god called upon to restore balance in a world focused on self-destruction, the musicians take the audience on an emotive journey that reflects the ever present conflict between peace and disturbance.

Performing live through semi-structured improvisation to an originally composed soundtrack by Shri Sriram, the three musicians bring together a unique blend of Carnatic vocals, violin, bass and electronica.

Shivoham is presented at the iconic York Minster during Interfaith week 2014.The performance will be followed by a post-show discussion with the artists chaired by Canon Chancellor Christopher Collingwood.
