ShivaNova of­fers fu­sion of styles

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - SOUNDS GOOD -

THE Equa­tor Mu­sic fes­ti­val moves up a gear this week­end for its show-stop­ping penul­ti­mate per­for­mance. Over the past few months, the fes­ti­val has brought mu­sic from places as far flung as China, Ar­gentina and Morocco to Ash­ford, and this Satur­day, the ShivaNova group fuses to­gether many of th­ese dis­parate mu­si­cal cul­tures. ShivaNova was formed in 1988 by Ten­ter­den mu­si­cian Priti Pain­tal, who is one of the or­gan­is­ers of the Equa­tor Fes­ti­val. The group’s ex­per­i­men­tal blend of dif­fer­ent Euro­pean, In­dian and African pop­u­lar, jazz and classical styles has won ad­mir­ers through­out the world. The con­cert takes place at Brake Hall at Ash­ford School on Satur­day night. ShivaNova take to the stage at 7.30pm, and there will be Bol­ly­wood-style danc­ing with a DJ from 6.45pm.

Tick­ets cost £6. To book, con­tact the Ash­ford Tourist In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre, 18 The Church­yard, Ash­ford, on 01233 629165.
