Thidius are a South London band who make great music.   I’m also lucky to call them friends.   Here is their debut EP.

Fadia-el-Hage: J. S. Bach’s Passions

J. S. Bach’s Passions provide an evocative sonic representation of the human suffering experienced by Jesus Christ. Here in ‘Erbarme Dich’ (Have Mercy) with Sarband’s accompaniment, Fadia el-Hage reprises Bach’s arias as healing songs which bridge conflicts and differences between worlds, between faiths, between believers and non-believers and between modernists and traditionalists.

It’s incredibly moving.
