Following a spellbinding performance at DMU last year, clarinettist and composer Arun Ghosh* is delighted to return to Leicester, performing music from his eagerly anticipated new album, But Where Are You Really From?
The new album, heralds a musical shift towards song-like structures and psychedelic textures, a sonic space where Alice Coltrane meets the Stone Roses and Spiritualized. Propelled by a hard driving rhythm section, and supported by the multi-layered guitar of Moss Freed, Arun's celebrated lyricism, melodic outpourings and freewheeling improvisations become passionate and intensely emotional 'songs without words'.
Winner of 'Jazz Instrumentalist of the Year' at the 2014 Parliamentary Jazz Awards, Arun 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 a charismatic rock 'n' roll spirit. His forthcoming album, But Where Are You Really From? will be released in October 2017.
