Celtic Storytelling - Violin and Harp
"I recently had the pleasure of hearing Sudhi, accompanied by a harpist, play a programme of several pieces of Celtic music. The moment Ms Salooja began to play the audience were captivated. Beginning with a deeply melancholic piece, Sudhi’s playing conjured up images of a traumatised land, an Ireland where hunger and poverty prevailed. The lilting refrain took us over the green hills to a place of suffering, reflected by the passion and depth of the music we were listening to. This was music that was heartfelt, honest and achingly beautiful. It brought tears to my eyes. As the violin and harp moved through the sadness and towards the joyful, it was as though the very essence of that distant Celtic land was laid bare before us. Ms Salooja puts her heart and soul into her playing, leaving her audience lost for words for quite some time afterwards. Her playing is extraordinarily sensitive, and, with years of training and experience behind her, Ms Salooja is a wonderfully talented and accomplished musician. I look forward to the day when I can personally book her for an event."
