AboutBritish-Asian clarinettist and composer Arun Ghosh makes his Bristol debut, performing music from new album, But Where Are You Really From?Winner of 'Jazz Instrumentalist of the Year' at the 2014 Parliamentary Jazz Awards, Ghosh is a leading light on UK and international jazz scenes, captivating audiences and critics with his passionate and dynamic performance style, eloquent musical expression and charismatic rock 'n' roll spirit.A renowned innovator of modern IndoJazz, Ghosh's new work heralds a musical shift towards song-like structures and psychedelic textures. Fluidly and instinctively incorporating jazz, rock, folk, South-Asian, hip-hop and ambient styles, But Where Are You Really From? expresses his unique and multi-faceted musical, emotional and cultural identity.Propelled by driving drums and Shirley Tetteh's multi-layered guitar, Ghosh's melodic outpourings and freewheeling improvisations become passionate, intensely charged 'songs without words'. With Liran Donin's hypnotic and interweaving basslines, and Chris Williams' alto exhortations added to the mix, the resulting sound is at once contemporary and primal, thought-provoking yet dancefloor friendly, and always communicative, accessible and all-embracing.7pm£14+ booking fee
