INDIAN melodies, soundscapes and light projections wowed audiences at a church in Hampshire.

Some 70 people visited St John’s Church in Northington near Alresford, to see the immersive music performance Lullaby - Sonic Cradle by cultural music company Manasamitra.

The first show was open to all ages including babies and toddlers and even attracted a visitor aged just six weeks old.

Meanwhile, the evening performance incorporated light projections, using lumisonic software, as part of a Heritage England project in St Johns, Northington. 

Dr Olu Taiwo, from the University of Winchester, used spoken word to encourage moments of quiet reflection.

Other performers at the event on Saturday, November 18 included Supriya Nagarajan, artistic director and singer, Duncan Chapman, sound artist, Neil Valentine, viola, Lyndon Ford, organ and lighting and photographer Libby Smith.
