Sri Lankan poet Pireeni Sundaralingam and Irish composer/violinist Colm O’Riain (photo to the right), residing in San Fransisco, USA, visited Sweden in the end of September 2006 to perform with a program called ”Word and Violin”. SASNET invited them to Lund to give a well-attended performance on Wednesday 27 September 2006, 19.00.
From Lund they proceeded to Uppsala University where they gave a performance for the Uppsala University English Society on Thursday 28 September. In the program Sundaralingam and O’Riain weave together music and word in a series of duets exploring the nature of exile and immigration. More information (as a pdf-file).
