One trick musician..?

American clarinetist and music composer, Shankar Tucker, rose to fame with the popularity of his online music video series called 'Shruti Box' amassing some 12 million views and 100,000 fans.

Indeed the beginning of his performance at the Hayward Gallery on Saturday was quite unique.

I would never of thought of coupling a clarinet with something like a tabla.

One idea

However, though very promising Tucker's themes failed to progress.

It was admittedly very musically adept, but lacked any real range of musical ideas.

Tucker is still young so he may be one to watch for interesting future collaborations.
