This edition of Bison Noir shines a spotlight on Sri Lankan-born, Canada-based composer-performer Dinuk Wijeratne, who has been described by the Toronto Star as “an artist who reflects a positive vision of our cultural future”, and by The New York Times as “exuberantly creative”. Mr Wijeratne made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2004 as a composer, conductor, and pianist performing with Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble. His boundary-crossing work sees him equally at home in collaborations with string quartets and tabla players.
