Indo-Welsh band Khamira return to Chapter for the first time since their sell-out show in 2017. Combining Welsh folk, Hindustani classical music and jazz, Khamira perform improvised world music at its best.
Three of Wales’ finest creative musicians are joined by three of India’s new wave of adventurous genre-breaking artists to create Khamira. Suhail Yusuf Khan’s virtuosic Sarangi and vocals dovetail with Tomos Williams’ understated trumpet; Vishal Nagar’s tabla joins in a feast of rhythms and syncopations with Mark O’Connor’s drum kit; Aditya Balani’s guitar soars over Aidan Thorne’s bass.
Imagine the cinematic scope of the Pat Metheny Group and the grunge funk of Miles Davis’ 70s band, inter-twinned with passages of melancholic Welsh folk music and Indian classical virtuosity!
Having first toured India in 2015, the band have since toured Wales (2017) and India (2018) and performed in South Korea (2019). This performance will be the final date of their Welsh tour and will coincide with the release of their second album ‘Undod/Unity’.
“When the full band plays the music is almost symphonic in scale and one can understand where the comparisons with Metheny come from, the sound is similarly cinematic and richly coloured and textured”. The Jazz Mann ★★★★
