Arun Ghosh biography
Arun Ghosh is a British-Asian clarinettist, composer
and music educator. He was selected to appear at the Jazz Ahead!
European Festival 2009 in Bremen, Germany as part of the UK Jazz
Showcase. In 2008, Ghosh was chosen to be a participant in the fourth
edition of the Jerwood/PRS Foundation ‘Take Five’ initiative
for emerging jazz musicians produced by Serious.
Conceived in Calcutta, bred in Bolton, matured
in Manchester and now living in London, Arun Ghosh’s musical
vision and vocabulary reflects his rich geographical heritage.
His Indo-Jazz Sextet play 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.
