ARUN GHOSH SEXTET - SOUTH ASIAN SUITE

IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH OUR ONLINE BOX OFFICE YOU CAN RESERVE TICKETS BY EMAILING US AT derbyjazznews@gmail.com. “...extraordinary charisma and musicianship and a consistently riveting compositional skill†JAZZWISE “An upfront mix of South Asian melodies and western street-grooves†The GUARDIAN Conceived in Calcutta, bred in Bolton, matured in Manchester and now living in London, Arun Ghosh’s musical vision and vocabulary reflects his rich and complex heritage. His Indo-Jazz Sextet plays original music of South Asian origin with a contemporary jazz attitude, rocking urban beats and the passion of punk. Sweet and timeless melodies give birth to soaring improvisations and raag explorations, driven by a heady mix of dub-reggae bass, tabla trickery and ferocious drum explosions. Constantly experimenting with live formats and arrangements has been key to Arun Ghosh’s growing reputation for creating music that is “...at once no-nonsense, thrilling and beautiful... uproarious and irresistible†Daily Telegraph. A charismatic live performer, Ghosh has regularly appeared at major UK venues and festivals, 2015 saw his 9th consecutive appearance at the renowned London Jazz Festival. In addition, Ghosh’s international presence has increased significantly with shows at festival and venues in Germany, Austria, India, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates. Today’s show features Arun’s typically euphoric and uplifting originals and his “South Asian Suiteâ€. Released as an album last year, this mesmeric and enchanting six movement suite is inspired by the music, landscape and peoples of Nepal, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, as seen from the viewpoint of a British-Asian from a Northern town.
