No one colours jazz like Zoe Rahman. Her British / Bengali heritage and classical training give her a unique perspective on music-making, a perspective that has placed her at the forefront of the contemporary jazz scene.

Zoe’s powerful technique and exuberant performance style have been admired from Barbados to Bangladesh in collaborations with Courtney Pine, Martha Wainwright, Jerry Dammers’ Spatial AKA, Bob Moses and Danny Thompson. Her compositions and performances are a potent cocktail of classical finesse and jazzy spontaneity, unmissable by anyone who appreciates inspirational music-making.

Now, fresh from winning the Best Jazz category at the 2012 MOBO Awards, she brings her fifth album Kindred Spirits to life alongside her acclaimed trio.
