Music from Columbia, India and Senegal will be among sounds from around the globe which will be featured at a city theatre next month.

Digital artists and producers Addictive TV will bring global music project Orchestra of Samples to Norwich Playhouse on Friday, February 2.

The Suffolk-based producers collaborated with music students from Norwich School, who will appear on stage in this special one-off performance presented by Music Worldwide, a cultural arts organisation. 

Gary Newland, chief executive and artistic director of Music Worldwide, said: “It is a real treat working with Addictive TV on this project, and with the highly talented students from Norwich School - audiences will be spellbound.”

Caroline Speca, once a professional violinist with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, now works closely with the music students of Norwich School.

She said: “Pupils are very excited to take part and can't wait to get going next week!  I love how this type of project creates a team spirit within the department. 

“I am particularly excited to involve pupils who play unusual instruments, for example the veena and harp, and I am delighted to perform alongside them and experience all that Orchestra of Samples has to offer.”

For this musical journey without borders, Addictive TV spent the last decade filming over 300 musicians in 30 different countries to collect sounds from across the globe, including Senegal, Kazakhstan, China, Columbia and India.

Frontman Graham Daniels said: “We took extra equipment to every gig, filming local musicians improvising on all manner of instruments.

"Then, like doing a giant jigsaw puzzle, we look for samples that fit together, taking the instruments to a musical place they weren’t before.”

The live concert will feature a visual display alongside its soundtrack so the audience can see the sampled musicians on screen. 

Tickets are £19 or £13 for under-25s.
