Ibrahim Maalouf and Manu Katche

Ibrahim Maalouf and Manu Katche

17/11/2015 from 19:30 to 11:00

Two of the most dynamic forces on today’s European jazz scene, in a double bill of genre-busting creative energy.

Drummer of choice for Sting, Peter Gabriel, Jan Garbarek and a host more, Manu Katché’s performances with his own live band are simply irresistible – ‘subtle world-grooves, glimpses of 1960s Blue Note jazz-funk, Scando-ambience and Mikes Davis post-bop.’ (The Guardian).

The buzz surrounding Ibrahim Maalouf’s set at last year’s Festival marked the emergence of ‘a startling new voice in contemporary jazz’ (The Guardian).

A year later, the trumpeter/composer returns to the inspiration of the super-cool jazz of the 50s first explored in his 2012 album Wind, with the tonalities of Middle Eastern music adding a sublime and trance-like atmosphere.
