Sika Live ~ Concert in the Cave
Sika returns to the Carnglaze Caverns.
Enter the cave and let Sika’s ancient sounds transport you to a different place and time.
Sika carries us into a world of earth wisdom and mystery. His music invokes a primal memory, soaring from lush rainforests to desert caves, from firesides to moonlit skies. Hypnotic rhythms that call us to dance upon the earth.
His concerts are dynamic and technically masterful, including up to thirty instruments in one performance. Ancient didgeridoo, double-skinned log drums, native flutes and obscure natural objects; mixed and looped live. Māori ‘singing treasures’ and evocative soundscapes from the Australian and New Zealand bush.
Sika is known for creating powerful cross-rhythms whilst sitting on his Taos drum – simultaneously playing didgeridoo, drum and percussion. He delights in the build; his concerts rise to an ecstatic crescendo of trance dance.
The cave’s huge stage, vast amplified acoustics and atmospheric lighting, will add to the magical ambience. Don’t miss experiencing these ancient sounds echoing inside the cavern!
A unique sound artist with a passion for sonic exploration.
To whet your appetite, here’s a clip from a very happy man at sound-check last year:
For your information before coming to The Rum Store:
As Carnglaze is a Tourist Attraction during the day we close the site to the public at 5pm (8pm August)
The gates will then open an hour before the performance is due to start. Please see your tickets for the performance time.
Seating is unreserved so it is a case of first come first served!
If you need Low Mobility Parking please inform us at the time of booking as spaces are limited and must be pre-booked.
Please remember this IS a cavern and the temperature remains at 10 deg C all year round, so warm clothing and a cushion are recommended.
We are a rural site so strong shoes and a small torch are also recommended.
What else may I need?
The atmosphere is changeable and may be damp.
You may wish to bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated. Hot and cold drinks will also be available at the refreshments bar. There is no food available.
Carnglaze Caverns can best be found off the A38. From Liskeard, there are brown tourist signs directing to Carnglaze just before Trago Mills. From Bodmin the signs are just past Trago Mills.
From the A30, turn off at the sign for Colliford Lake and follow the signs to St Neot. Drive through the village and Carnglaze is about a mile south of the village, on the left.
