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.
