Join Baqir Abbas, the Pied Piper of Pakistan with friends for an evening of Jazz & Blues fused with eastern mysticism.

About this event

Baqir Abbas from Lahore in Pakistan is an enigma! He's the first Bansuri (bamboo flute) musician to genuinely take this instrument into the world of jazz. He has been described by the Godfather of jazz today, Wynton Marsalis who runs the acclaimed Jazz at Lincoln Centre in New York as one of the finest musicians in the world today! On Friday 4th November Baqir Abbas will take you on a truly mystic journey with his interpretation of many jazz and blues standards.

Accompanying him will be 3 epic musicians. One will be the very sublime blues and contemporary fusion guitarist Hasan Imam Hamdani; also from Lahore originally but after graduating from the Berklee school of music in Boston, now resides in California.

Ayoze de Alejandro, from Gran Canaria in Spain and London resident is a magician percussionist. He's got all sorts of tricks in his magic box to bring music to life.

Tom Mason is one of the most versatile and recognised double bassists and bass guitarists on the UK music scene. Having performed with Jamie Cullum, Daymé Arocena and Lily Allen amongst many others Tom is always that binding force on stage.

Do come and get ready to be transported....exactly where, we will find out together on the night!
