Arun Ghosh

Arun Ghosh is a British-Asian clarinettist and composer. His second album, Primal Odyssey, was released in October 2011 on camoci records.

In 2008 he was selected for Edition IV of the Jerwood/PRS Foundation 'Take Five' initiative for emerging jazz musicians produced by Serious. In 2009, he was invited to perform at the jazzahead! Festival in Bremen, Germany as part of the UK showcase presented by Jazz Services. In 2010, he was made an Associate Artist at The Albany Theatre, London - a position still held and in April 2011, Ghosh was made an Artist-in-Residence for the Southbank’s Alchemy Festival.

September 2011 saw Arun Ghosh feature as the cover star for Jazzwise magazine, the UK's biggest selling jazz magazine.

Conceived in Calcutta, bred in Bolton, matured in Manchester and now living in London, Arun Ghosh's musical vision and vocabulary reflects his rich geographical heritage.

His Indo-Jazz Sextet play original music of South Asian origin with a contemporary jazz attitude,rocking urban beats and the passion of punk. Sweet and timeless melodies give birth to soaring improvisations and raag explorations, driven by a heady mix of dub-reggae bass, tabla trickery and ferocious drum explosions.

The first Arun Ghosh IndoJazz Sextet performance took place at the London Jazz Festival in 2007. The stellar line up consisted of: Arun Ghosh - clarinet, Idris Rahman - tenor saxophone Dr Das - bass Aref Durvesh - tabla and dholak Kishon Khan - piano Myke Wilson - drums

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
