ANIMO, flute and piano duo are Sarah Waycott on flute and Yanna Zissiadou on piano. Sarah and Yanna have the same approach to making music: to play soulful, innovative and challenging music that is free of labels and is to be enjoyed for what it is: ‘just music’.
Manasamitra is an artist-led organisation based in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, delivering a range of exciting and original cross-cultural experiences. Our work is rooted in the creative vision of Supriya Nagarajan, a classically-trained Carnatic singer who is inspired by not only the traditions of her South Asian roots but also by a drive to work with new ideas, forms and aesthetics from across the world, presented within a contemporary British context.
ANIMO commissioned Supirya to write a new composition for them in 2020. It was to be mainly improvised with only two sections written-out.
