Milapfest and The Capstone Theatre present Arun Ghosh Quintet: A South Asian Suite

Arun Ghosh returns to Liverpool, bringing his trademark and renowned Indo-Jazz sound. The British-Asian clarinettist and composer is a leading light on UK and international jazz scenes, captivating audiences and critics with his passionate and dynamic performance style, eloquent musical expression and a healthy dose of rock ‘n’ roll spirit.

This special performance features Ghosh’s IndoJazz chamber work, A South Asian Suite. Released as an album in Autumn 2013, this mesmeric and enchanting six movement suite is inspired by the music, landscape and people of the Indian Subcontinent, 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.

“…uproarious and irresistible” – Daily Telegraph

” Life-affirming music that transcends cultural barriers.” – Manchester Evening News

“…an upfront mix of South Asian melodies and western street-grooves…” – The Guardian
