Zoe and Idris Rahman

Zoe Rahman: "Dreamland", featuring special guest Idris Rahman

MOBO winning pianist and composer Zoe Rahman returns to Leicester to perform music from her new solo piano album, "Dreamland". The album showcases the depth and breadth of her musical imagination, featuring new compositions alongside tracks by Duke Ellington, Jessica Williams, Rabindranath Tagore, as well as solo renditions of some of Zoe’s back catalogue. There will be a special guest appearance by her brother, Idris Rahman (on clarinet and saxophone) with whom she has collaborated on many musical projects, including her fourth album "Where Rivers Meet", which was described in the Sunday Times as "a wholly original brand of Anglo-Asian music".

Dreamland album reviews:
“Always exciting, playful, muscular and a tiny bit unhinged, that’s what I love about Zoe Rahman” - Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2.
“An exciting solo set, brilliantly performed and totally absorbing” **** The Observer
