Halka is a musical project born from several years of artistic collaboration between Vivek Venkatesh, David Hall, Owen Chapman, and Norwegian progressive metal legend Enslaved’s co-founder Ivar Bjørnson. They will be joined by Jessie Beier, Annabelle Brault, Danji Buck-Moore, José-Luis Cortés Santander, Martin Lalonde, Michel Poulin and Veronica Florence Mockler for two different sound and multimedia performances at the St Jax church on 14-15 October 2022.
Special guests of the show include Leila Abdul-Rauf and Le Monastère Cabaret de Cirque.
Halka means gentle and subtle in Urdu. Through Halka, we explore the ethos of slow and purposeful creation. What does it mean to be gentle in the face of harshness? How lightly do we need to be to float and yet feel anchored?
