Details

Arun was voted “Instrumentalist of the Year” in the 2014 Parliamentary Jazz Awards. His engaging personality, superb playing and attractive compositions have all contributed to his success. Conceived in Calcutta, bred in Bolton, matured in Manchester and now living in London he uses the spirit and language of jazz, with the sounds and styles of Indian classical and folk, hip-hop and rock. Arun's music is full of lyrical melodies and searching harmonies, down to earth directness and psychedelic ambient introspection.

Iinspired by the music of Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, India and Sri Lanka the music captures the charisma of Ghosh perfectly, with a melodicism and sense of attack that is quite different to anything you’ll hear on the contemporary jazz scene. (Marlbank Jazz Blog
