Birmingham Jazz presents

Have your boat floated this Friday.

There’s more international jazz at the 1,000 Trades on Friday, when Liran Donin performs his debut album, which features his exciting and fiery band, ,1000 Boats.

Israeli-born bass player, producer and composer Liran has been involved with high profile and cutting edge artists, bands and projects both nationally and internationally, a highly sought after bass player across a varied musical spectrum. With his distinctive powerhouse groove and his virtuosic approach to electric and double bass, Liran has been pushing the limits of the bass into unknown territories.

He has been recording and touring alongside artists such as Mercury Prize Award nominees Led Bib and Polar Bear, BBC folk award winners The Unthanks, Ethiopian vibraphonist Mulatu Astatke, rock and pop artists such as Chrissie Hynde and US indie band Here We Go Magic to name but few. Liran has also worked with the late great Tabla maestro Pandit Shardah Sahai and the vocalist Aruna Sairam amongst many others and his distinctive bass can also be heard on film, radio and TV.

As a composer, Liran has been working on a range of commissions including radio and documentary and is currently commissioned by choreographer Sivan Rubinstein on her new cutting edge performances MAPS which toured across the UK and Europe during 2019.
