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.
Lokkhi Terra biography
Lokkhi Terra is a music project created by UK/Bangladeshi musician
Kishon Khan - combining Bangladeshi music traditions with those
from Africa and Latin America - creating a sound that can truly
be called “world music.”
“A musical journey taking you from the melas of Bangladesh
to the streets of Habana, via some districts in Lagos on to a bustling
club in London.”
