Zoe Rahman performs with her eight-piece band at Turner Sims Southampton

MOBO Award winner, Mercury Prize nominee, Jazz FM Award nominee and British Jazz Award winner Zoe Rahman returns to the Turner Sims stage on Friday 16 June, this time with her eight-piece ensemble. The vibrant and highly individual pianist and composer’s style is deeply rooted in jazz, yet it reflects her classical background, British/Bengali heritage and broad musical taste. Tonight she plays music from her latest album, Colour of Sound, showcasing her own compositions and featuring an all-star line-up.

I write music that’s influenced by all the music I love listening to but I shape it into my own style that says something about me as a human being... Although I played classical music growing up and I love many types of music, jazz is my passion. I love the rhythm, freedom to improvise, the blues elements, the vibrancy of live gigs so I try to explore those elements in my music. Zoe Rahman
