Day 363 - Made In Perthshire: Balahto
A fantastic instrumental piece from Jan 2017. It was written by the iconic Indian percussionist Trilok Gurtu, and performed as part of Pearls Of The Tay during Perth Concert Hall's opening weekend in Sep 2005, which Trilok directed.
Ross Ainslie was part of that show and was joint Musical Director (with Patsy Reid) for Made In Perthshire, our tenth anniversary concert (originally staged in Sep 2015) and included Balahto as a tribute.
Balahto was performed by Ross Ainslie (whistle), Patsy Reid (violin), Dave Milligan (piano), Signy Jakobsdottir (percussion), Ben Nicholls (bass), Ali Hutton (guitar), Graeme Stephen (guitar), Laura Wilkie (violin), Stewart McMurdo (viola) and Rachel Wilson (cello).
