Sacred Sounds: Sikh Music Traditions and the First World War

Wednesday 15 November 14.00 – 16.00

War Cinema, Royal Armouries, Armouries Drive, Leeds, LS10 1LT

Sacred Sounds tells some of the largely forgotten stories of British India's role in the First World War. This live concert showcases the music that Sikh soldiers took with them to camp and battlefield. The concert explores some of the many narratives of this period, the music itself, letters exchanged between Sikh soldiers and their families, and the songs themselves. A cinematic backdrop promises to make this a thought-provoking and memorable experience.
