From jazz pianist Tim Richards’ Timetrap, with its meld of Afro-Cuban bembe grooves, to the electric improvisatory lines of 18 year old saxophonist Asha Parkinson’s Waiting for the Barbarians, inspired by Arabic maquam plus the translucent textures & colour of Body of Edges, by leading contemporary composer Colin Riley.
