About Mid-day Mantra: Zoe Rahman Trio, a Bangladesh at 50 Special
In association with Sampad
A Mid-day Mantra family special with live music from The Zoe Rahman Trio, poetry readings, and Bengali craft, to mark the anniversary of the Independence of Bangladesh, 50 years ago this month
Zoe Rahman was born in Chichester, UK, to a Bengali father and English mother, and studied classical piano at the Royal Academy of Music. Later she took a music degree at Oxford University and then won a scholarship to study jazz performance at Berklee College of Music, Boston, where she studied with the inspirational pianist JoAnne Brackeen.
Zoe's albums have won many awards and acclaim including a MOBO for best Jazz Act 2012 (a work of breathtaking musical imagination’, Metro), Mercury Award nomination in 2006, and ‘Jazz Album of the Year’ at the UK’s first Parliamentary Jazz Awards. Her fourth album, Where Rivers Meet, is a stunning collaboration with her brother Idris, exploring music from their Bengali heritage, which creates “a wholly original brand of Anglo-Asian music” (Sunday Times).
The Zoe Rahman Trio will feature Idris Rahman on Clarinet and Debipriya Sircar on Sitar.
Also appearing is poet Tamanna Abdul-Karim, and craft artists Dilwara Begum and Sameerah.
