We’re privileged to welcome award-winning British-Asian composer and clarinettist Arun Ghosh back to Hull for our 30th anniversary celebration.

Arun’s taken the UK jazz scene by storm since winning Instrumentalist of the Year at the 2018 Parliamentary Jazz Awards. He returns to Hull with a new Northern quartet to launch his much-anticipated new album Seclused in Light.

Conceived in Calcutta, bred in Bolton, matured in Manchester and now living in London, Ghosh’s musical vocabulary and vision reflects his rich geographical heritage. He blends the spirit and language of jazz with the sounds and styles of hip-hop, Indian classical and folk, western classical, rock, pop and avant-garde.

Composed, recorded and produced during the lockdowns, the music on Seclused in Light is at times searing and effervescent, other times evocative and highly atmospheric – but always brought to life, and given breath, by Arun’s uniquely expressive clarinet playing and his dynamic band.

Arun’s shows are always special, spontaneous and moving events. You won’t want to miss this one!

Line up:

Arun Ghosh – clarinet

Jamil Sheriff – piano

Gavin Barras – double bass
