This activity is completed or marked as expired


Renowned saxophonist Iain Ballamy shares his lifelong fascination with the vibrant music of Brazil in a celebration of five Brazilian musical legends.

Fascinada (or Spellbound) features magical textural improvisations. Each one leads to an original composition created in the spirit of Ivan Lins, Milton Nascimento, Tom Jobim, Joao Bosco or Hermeto Pascoal.

Iain has spent over 3 decades transcending musical genres and stereotypes. He has strong relationships with musicians around the globe, and has worked with many cutting-edge figures of today’s contemporary jazz scene. He has performed as a member of Hermeto Pascoal’s groups during their UK appearances.

Iain is joined by a stellar band. It features extraordinary BBC Young Generation Artist guitarist Rob Luft, long-time collaborator (including Quercus w. June Tabor) lyrical pianist Huw Warren, in-demand bassist Conor Chaplin (Marius Nest, Emma Rawizc and Laura Jurd), and young percussion powerhouse Will Glaser.
