Play Out explores the improvisational nature of Indian and Jazz music through fascinating creative partnerships that cross musical and geographical borders.
At the heart of Play Out lies Jesse Bannister’s distinctive sound, honed from years of absorbing influences from Indian classical music, jazz and contemporary composition.
The outstanding pianist, Zoe Rahman has established herself as a rising star on the contemporary jazz scene and has been described as ‘one of the finest young pianists in Europe’ (The Observer). The group features rarely heard saxophone / percussion dialogue with the powerfully original drummer, Seb Rochford, and Kenny Higgins bringing his dynamic bass to the collaboration.
This concert is presented by our Cultural Partner, sampad, who exist to develop a deep and distinctive structure of South Asian arts in Birmingham and Britain through production, promotion, advocacy, education and outreach.
