Hidden Rooms

A very welcome return for the dramatically charismatic clarinettist. Conceived in Calcutta, bred in Bolton, matured in Manchester and now living in London Arun Ghosh is a British-Asian clarinettist, composer and music educator. His musical vocabulary reflects his rich geographical heritage. Using the spirit and language of jazz, with hip-hop, Indian classical and folk, Western classical, rock, pop and avant-garde, his music is full of lyrical melodies and searching harmonies. Arun is joined by on stage with a stellar line up of musicians.

His new album, But Where Are You Really From? (released October 2017) reveals a move towards song-like structures and psychedelic textures; a sonic space where Alice Coltrane meets The Doors, Primal Scream and The Velvet Underground.
