There will be a pre-concert talk with Aziz and friends at 6:30pm.


Longsight Anson Estate artist Aziz Ibrahim is a master collaborator, working with diverse artists/projects such as The Stone Roses, Overload (Pakistan), Paul Weller, Mike Joyce (The Smiths) and Project 70 Asian Blues (Arts Council England)— there is a reason why he is so highly valued by the music elite. For an artist synonymous with musical melding and the Asian Blues aesthetic, it is little wonder that he is such a good fit for ‘probably Britain’s most adventurous orchestra’ (The Times). This night offers a radical orchestral interpretation of original compositions and the unreleased album Lahore to Longsight, that charts the journey of Aziz’s father from a divided India to Pakistan to Manchester and the path to self-identity and acceptance, for a son torn between vastly different cultures. Special guests Kaviraj Singh (santoor) and Dalbir Singh Rattan (tabla).
