Saturday September 28th - The Magic of Rajasthan with The Jaipur Kawa Brass Band

Northwick Arms Hall, Ketton
8 pm     £8
Indian Chai, nibbles and raffle at half time

With elaborate rhythms and virtuoso improvisations this spectacular group of authentic Rajastanhi gypsies present a wild repertoire, from traditional Indian classics to popular Bollywood movies hits. 


Hailing from a long family lineage of musicians and sharing his life between Jaipur and Paris, Hameed Khan Kawa has known the sound of the brass band since his birth. Exposed to different musical styles – jazz, Western traditional music, Indian music – Hameed developed the idea of creating a brass band of his own to present the fantastic sound of the Indian Brass Band.

He selected the most talented musicians from the best local bands of Rajasthan, with a repertoire blending popular themes from Bollywood films, traditional music of Rajasthan with its distinctive Gypsy sound, and even a touch of Hindustani classical music to create a sound which is individual and unexpected.

A rousing musical extravaganza on recognisably Western instruments such as the clarinet, trumpet, trombone, sousaphone, saxophone and tuba and an array of percussion. They come with a beautifully costumed Gypsy Sapera Kalbelya dancer and a genuine fakir, whose sabre swallowing, extreme juggling and stupendous balancing skills have to be seen to be believed.

Why not book a meal before the show at the Northwick Arms?
