The World of the Gods, composed by Tommy Smith, marks the reunion of the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra with the Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers for an evening of brilliant musicianship and breath-taking physical energy.
When ancient meets modern and vibrant orchestral sounds encounter a musical tradition more than 2000 years old. Yet, there is common ground between them. Described as “a truly imaginative work that dances in both the physical and musical sense”, The World of the Gods embraces experimentation, extrapolation and improvisation that is “powerful, vibrant and atmospheric”.
