KEFAYA is an exciting new UK-based collaboration involving some of the best musicians in the north of England.
Tomorrow, they play in the Cellar space at the Lawrence Batley Theatre as part of the Huddersfield Jazz season.
This new band is described as an exploration through jazz and contemporary electronics of world folk music, from Arabic, West-African and Italian folk music, to Indian classical, dub, flamenco and klezma.
The core band is led by guitarist Giuliano Modarelli with Al MacSween on keys, percussion and electronics, Joost Hendrickx on drums and the renowned Kenny Higgins on bass.
Completing the line-up is jazz award winner Richard Ormrod on reeds and flute and Olivia Moore on violin.
Bandleader Giuliano, originally from Italy but now based in Leeds, is a virtuoso guitarist.
Having studied jazz at university, Guiliano went on to develop through the Indian classical tradition.
His innovative style embraces the Indian classical, Arabic, flamenco, Latin and European folk traditions.
He feeds this into an equally versatile band which gives Kefaya its distinctive sound.
The performance starts at 8.00pm. Tickets from the LBT box office on 01484 430528.
