As passionate about Segovia and jazz as he is about Indian and classical contemporary music, Simon Thacker’s work effortlessly transcends boundaries, genres and continents and continues to expand into unprecedented new territory.  He leads and composes for Svara-Kanti, whose debut album Rakshasa was hailed in reviews around the world as a new benchmark in  intercultural collaboration, and Simon Thacker's Ritmata. His duo with Polish cellist Justyna Jablonska will soon premiere Karmana, a new large scale programme.
