This Funzing Experience:
Join and listen to the incredible Dr Shama Rahman as she weaves stories that start life as poems and take flight as songs.

Dr Shama Rahman is an award-winning sitarist, composer and singer. On the 24th of May she will be launching and performing her new multidisciplinary musical storytelling album 'Truth BeTold', a bilingual hybrid of elements from opera, theatre, cabaret and sitar performance with visual art, science, Sufi poetry and the manifold sounds of water mixed in.

Truth BeTold’ is a 16-track album of songs and poetic interludes and it is the world’s first full live album recorded with the pioneering mi.mu gloves technology.

Mi.Mu Gloves, is a wearable technology that enables a musician to control music with gestures while interacting with the accompanying performance.

As a mi.mu glove artist-in-residence, Dr Shama Rahman has been inspired to bring new impulses to the way she approaches composition and improvisation which allows for an unprecedented new form of performance as she is able to electronically manipulate the Sitar and her voice live.

She will be playing the album live at Alchemy and is backed by a six-piece electro-acoustic band playing improvisatory music that flows freely through genres and traditions from around the world.

Dr Shama Rahman will showcase these storytelling songs with an immersive theatrical performance that bring together different disciplines and art-forms including musicians, dancers and visual artists

'Truth BeTold' is a transformative journey told through personal life experiences. This is lyrically, visually and sonically embodied through different water forms and audio field recordings such as playful creeks, melting river-flows, and the terrible calm beauty of the sea.

These life stages are thematically arranged into three chapters reflecting Sufi poet Rumi's questions:
“Is it True?’, ‘Is it Necessary?', ‘Is it Kind?’

Join Dr Shama Rahman on this magical journey with music and songs and support the project.
