Award-winning clarinettist Arun Ghosh returns to Newcastle, performing music from brand new album Seclused in Light, and celebrating UNESCO International Jazz Day.

A leading light on the UK jazz scene, Arun and his band deliver a passionate sound driven by soaring melodies, hypnotic rhythms and transcendental textures. Tonight’s show takes this further, with a fresh collaboration with Glasgow-based cutting-edge guitarist, Kapil Seshasayee.

Twice awarded 'Jazz Instrumentalist of the Year' at the Parliamentary Jazz Awards, Arun’s musical style embodies a multi-era / multi-genre approach; where numerous strands of jazz join forces with a myriad of musical influences: from jungle to punk, blues to Bollywood…and beyond.

This open-eared aesthetic and musical philosophy, set alongside his bringing together of South-Asian raags (modes) and taals (rhythms) with jazz culture and instrumentation, has led him to be considered a ‘renowned innovator of modern IndoJazz’.

A charismatic and communicative performer, Arun Ghosh’s shows are always special, spontaneous and moving events; this is a gig not to be missed!


Earlier in the day, Arun and the band will kick off UNESCO International Jazz Day at The Globe with a feelgood, family-friendly concert and young people’s jam session…come down, join in and make some noise, all ages welcome!
