Set to a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack by leading light of the UK Asian music scene, Shri (of Badmarsh and Shri), Ramayana
takes you on a heady and moving journey through forests and fire.Performers Paul Sharma (Rama), Vanessa Ackerman (Sita), Richard Simons (Hanumen), Stephen Ventura, Kolade Agboke, Nicholas Khan, Eva Magyar.
