Arun Ghosh

Corsica Studios


Arun Ghosh brings soaring clarinet lines and driving beats to Corsica Studios for EFG London Jazz Festival.

British-Asian clarinettist Arun Ghosh presents a collaborative set in a special performance for Corsica Studios as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival. Inspired by IndoJazz, electro-psychedelia and the sounds of the Asian Underground, tonight’s show features new material and radical re-imaginings of Ghosh’s earlier work.

Featuring South-Asian rhythm futurist Sarathy Korwar, alongside rising saxophone star Chelsea Carmichael, Marli Wren brings a new dimension to Ghosh’s hypnotic bass aesthetic. The group expression is augmented with Ghosh’s beloved long-term collaborators, Idris Rahman on tenor sax and Jason Singh with beatbox and electronics.

The illustrious band line-up on the night is as follows:

arun ghosh – clarinet / keys
chelsea carmichael – tenor saxophone / bass clarinet
idris rahman – tenor saxophone
marli wren – bass
jason singh – electro-sonics
sarathy korwar – drums / tabla
abrar hafiz – tanpura / guitar

Award-winning musician and sound artist Jason Singh has been signed on to open the night with a rare London solo live set, with support from DJ Pandit G.
