EFG LJF x Collage presents: UNKNOWN TO KNOWN
17 November @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
PART OF THE EFG LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL
We are thrilled to present Unknown To Known for the EFG London Jazz Festival at Karamel!
Unknown to Known offers an intimate dialogue of meandering melodies and textural grooves over resounding harmonic landscapes. At times euphoric and often dynamic, this music is always interactive, honest and raw.
This group is a culmination of four musicians each active in some of the most prominent musical forces around today including Sting, Van Morrison, Anoushka Shankar, Joy Crookes, Wild Flower, Ill Considered, Collocutor, Akram Khan, Dele Sosimi, Sarathy Korwar and more.
On woodwinds, Idris Rahman and Tamar Osborn weave together the melodic fabric of this music. Their lyrical approach gracefully compliments one another, whether they play in unison or counterpoint.
Jihad Darwish oscillates between the sitar, double bass and electric bass, providing a bridge from melodic and harmonic worlds down to earthy, pulsating yet sensitive grooves which Yusuf Ahmed ties together on the drums and various hybrid percussion instruments.
“Blown away. The best I can do is to keep my silence” (Play It Loud!)
“One to excite any modern jazz head. The music they create as Unknown To Known is a whole new level of aural meditation.” (Twisted Soul)
Lineup: Idris Rahman (sax, clarinet), Tamar Osborn (sax), Jihad Darwish (bass, sitar), Yusuf Ahmed (drums).
Doors open 7pm, music from 8pm.
We gratefully acknowledge the PRS Foundation in supporting this event at Karamel.
