Bring your family and friends and gather under the stars for a world music concert. Join us for a spellbinding cross-cultural mix of rock, Tamil folk, Sufi Qawwali, and classical string quartet.

Queen Between takes an enigmatic look at imagination as expressed in language, poetry and music. The songs explore the elusive nature of reality or spiritual truth, and the universality of liminal states, ritual, and magical thinking. The cross-cultural, cross-genre musical exchange reflects themes of cultural exchange, migration, and transformation.

“wildly original, passionate and dangerous” – Guardian live review.

In the commissioned evening-length concert Queen Between, Susheela Raman and Sam Mills expand their collaboration with Rizwan Muazzam Qawwali, along with the Phaedra Ensemble string quartet and a western rhythm section.

“Beautiful, image-saturated poetry…beguiling…cinematically epic…caught between darkness and light, exploring one extreme contrast after another. Intelligent, challenging and immensely satisfying, Queen Between proves that a musician of her caliber has more than one solitary masterpiece in their oeuvre. Add yet another jewel to the crown of this formidable queen.” – The Sonic Hive

“Raman gathered the energy and sent it soaring higher and higher, until at last it broke like a wave over an audience standing to clap and scream.” – Financial Times live review

Part of the UK/UAE 2017 Year of Creative Collaboration led by the British Council.
