The April edition of Global Echoes – Unique Sounds features Daniel Philippe, Murali Ramakrishnan and Feridun Avar.

Have you ever wondered how a nyckelharpa resonates, or the enchanting melodies a crystal armonica can produce? How about immersing yourself in the rich tones of a saz, the soulful breath of a mey, or the tranquil flow of a bansuri?

Featured musicians include: 

Daniel Philippe – 

Daniel Philippe’s musical journey started at eight years old when his parents recognised his talent for piano and took him for lessons. His interest was immediately piqued and to this day has never waned. Daniel’s early interest in music has evolved into over thirty years of performing and teaching music. He has performed in a variety of styles ranging from jazz to classical to rock, in ensembles and as a soloist. Most recently he has branched out into intercultural collaborations of spiritual music as part of his Masters degree. As well as live performance, Daniel has played on many recordings in different styles, including releasing his own ambient jazz albums under the name Reflectiv.

His bansuri playing is celebrated for its meditative spirit, captivating audiences, and resonating deeply with the soul.
