Word, Song and Discourse with Amit Chaudhuri
Tue 15 November 2016, 19:00 – 23:00 GMT
‘Amit Chaudhuri has, like Proust, perfected the art of the moment… [he] is a miniaturist, for whom tiny moments become radiant, and for whom the complexities of the fleeting mood uncurl onto the page like a leaf, a petal.’ Hilary Mantel, New York Review of Books.
‘Captivating and deeply idiosyncratic fusion/not fusion of Hindustani classical music, jazz, rock and blues… dreamy raga-based discursions which incorporate the acid rock songbook, trumpeter Miles Davis’ modal legacy, Delta blues and retro Tin Pan Alley… A quirky, one-of-a-kind, little piece of magic.’ Chris May, All About Jazz
Author of six novels, winner of the Commonwealth Literature Prize, the Betty Trask award, the Encore Prize, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and the Indian government’s Sahitya Akademi Award; one of the most influential literary critics of his generation, and acclaimed North Indian singer for whom jazz, rock and blues iinfuse classical Hindustani raga, Amit Chaudhuri joins The Baldwin’s inaugural dinner salon for word, song and discourse.
