About

A daring and innovative duo, Sonic Threads transcend cultural and genre boundaries as they seamlessly merge Eastern and Western influences in their performances.

Supriya Nagarajan is a composer and singer who creates rich, dreamy soundscapes as she combines her Indian musical background with contemporary classical music whilst harpist Lucy Nolan uses a combination of rag inspired music, free improvisation and electronics which when combined weave a unique sonic tapestry drawing on influences from jazz, Carnatic and Western Classical music.

 

Frequently performing as a duo and alongside other guest artists both nationally and internationally, Sonic Threads are regularly invited to perform at renowned music venues and festivals with recent appearances including The Royal Albert Hall, TUSK Music Festival, The Sage Gateshead, Lambeth Palace, Cafe Oto,  Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and Jaipur Literature Festival.
