New Album – the Best of Baluji Shrivastav

BalujiSitar maestro Baluji Shrivastrav has launched a compilation album celebrating an extraordinary musical career, featuring the Inner Vision Orchestra who Disability Arts Cymru and UCAN brought to Wales a couple of years ago.

Baluji has been campaigning for a long time for blind musicians to be treated as equally as their sighted peers. To raise awareness Baluji and the Inner Vision Orchestra have formed a partnership with Rich Mix Studios in East London. Between 11am and 4pm on fortnightly Mondays starting the 13th March and running for a year, the Inner Vision Orchestra will be at Rich Mix rehearsing and developing new projects and everyone, blind or sighted, is invited to watch proceedings taking place.

Spring into the New Year with The Riverfront

Riverfront Following a momentous 2015, which saw them achieve record-breaking attendance figures and form a major part of Newport Live, they begin 2016 with a jam-packed season of events, performances, cinema screenings and workshops.

But let’s hold our horses for a moment – have you sorted out all your Christmas shopping yet? Newport Live can offer you a range of ideal Christmas presents for all the family:

From chuckles with the hilarious Debra Stephenson for the comedy queen in your life, to the heart-warming tale of rugby legend Ray Grav Gravell – a perfect present for Dads and Grandads – The Riverfront has got some cracking Christmas pressies lined up. There’s even something for the li’l ‘uns in the form of the colourful and kooky Shiny – a unique participatory performance where all that glitters unfolds before your very eyes.

2016 is also set to be a great year in the music stakes. With top-class tribute acts such as Whitney: Queen of the Night, Frankie Valli celebrators The Sherry Babys and the utterly brilliant A Night of Queen – The Bohemians  rocking the Springtime stage, as well as the return of classical music favourites Sinfonia Cymru, there truly is something to cater to everyone’s musical taste.
