“…uproarious and irresistible” – Daily Telegraph

Life-affirming music that transcends cultural barriers” – Manchester Evening News

IndoJazz sensation Arun Ghosh makes his long-awaited debut at NQ Jazz. It’s a homecoming concert for the award-winning clarinettist, performing music from his celebrated new record, ‘Seclused in Light’.

A leading light in British jazz, Arun and his band deliver a passionate sound driven by soaring melodies, hypnotic rhythms and transcendental textures. Arun grew up in Bolton, and cut his teeth within Manchester’s vibrant jazz scene. Since then he has released five acclaimed albums, and toured nationally and internationally. Tonight’s show reunites him with fantastic musicians from Manchester and Leeds scenes: Dave Walsh (drums) Gavin Barras (double bass) and Jamil Sheriff (piano), with London based sax colossus, Chris Williams on alto.

Twice awarded Jazz Instrumentalist of the Year at the Parliamentary Jazz Awards, Arun’s musical style takes a multi-era/multi-genre approach; where numerous strands of jazz join forces with a myriad of musical influences: from jungle to punk, blues to Bollywood…and beyond. This open-eared aesthetic and musical philosophy, and his bringing together of South-Asian raags (melodies) and taals (rhythms) with jazz culture and instrumentation, has led him to be considered a renowned innovator of modern IndoJazz.

A charismatic and communicative performer, Arun Ghosh’s shows are always special, spontaneous and moving events – especially here in Manchester; this is a gig not to be missed!

On the door tickets: £14 / £10 (no booking fees)
