Arun Ghosh Sextet featuring Zoe Rahman A South Asian Suite (Sage Gateshead, Friday Nov. 1)

Three years since his stunning début at Gateshead International Jazz Festival, Arun Ghosh brings his trademark IndoJazz sound back to the Sage Gateshead, featuring the MOBO Award winning pianist, Zoe Rahman.
The British-Asian clarinettist and composer has become a leading light on both the national and international jazz scene, captivating audiences and critics with his passionate and dynamic performance style, eloquent musical expression and a healthy dose of rock 'n' roll spirit.
On Friday (Nov. 1), the Arun Ghosh Sextet will be performing Ghosh's IndoJazz chamber work, the recently recorded A South Asian Suite. This mesmeric and enchanting six movement suite is inspired by the music, landscape and peoples of Nepal, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, as seen from the viewpoint of a British-Asian from a Northern town.
Pieces from Ghosh's acclaimed albums Northern Namaste and Primal Odyssey, plus euphoric live favourites comprise the second half.
Presented with Sage Gateshead, GemArts and Jazz North East
