Summer by the River: Balladeste

190615 Balladeste Pic

A collaboration between Preetha Narayanan (violin) and Tara Franks (cello), string duo Balladeste explore the versatility and sound potential of just two stringed instruments. With elements of contemporary minimalism, Indian classical music and folk, the duo create original compositions that are vibrant and experimental yet melodic and cinematic in quality – songs without words with a contemporary alt-folk twist.

“gorgeous compositions and swooning melodies with warmth and fervour that demand attention” The Musician (Top pick album Spring 2018)

"Dazzling musicianship and transportive melodies. An utter privilege to have them on the show” The Nest Collective – Resonance F
