Birmingham Jazz presents…

Multi-national talents going on display.

This week’s offering at 1,000 Trades will be the Sirkis/Bialas International Quartet. The band are a collaboration between Israeli UK-resident drummer/composer Asaf Sirkis, known for his work with an array of international jazz players, and Polish vocalist/composer extraordinaire Sylwia Bialas.

With an emphasis on band interaction and the sheer joy of playing, this band celebrates music from a wide range of influences: contemporary classical, Polish folk, South Indian & Middle Eastern music as well as a wide range of dynamics.

From the most delicate ballad all the way to high-energy electric virtuoso lines and everything in between. Expect soulful melodies, aerospheric sounds with strong grooves, a full-colour electroacoustic jazz with an ethnic touch and some uncommonly used instruments and sound effects.

Friday 29th November, 1,000 Trades, 16 Frederick Street, Jewellery Quarter, B1 3HE. Admission – Advance standard £12.50, members £10, students £5 (on the door £15/£12.50/£5)
