Award-winning and internationally renowned clarinettist Arun Ghosh is delighted to return to mac with new music, new sounds and new album, But Where Are You Really From?

Revealing his 'indie-kid' Manchester musical upbringing, the new material marks Ghosh's move away from his trademark IndoJazz sound towards more song-like structures and psychedelic textures. Alice Coltrane meets The Doors, Spiritualized and The Velvet Underground. Propelled by a hard driving rhythm section, and supported by the multi-layered guitar of Shirley Tetteh, Ghosh's celebrated lyricism, melodic outpourings and freewheeling improvisations become passionate and intensely emotional 'songs without words'.
