Zoe Rahman, spellbinding pianist and visionary composer, presents her new album “Colour of Sound”, featuring an all-star jazz line-up.

Zoe Rahman’s style is deeply rooted in jazz yet it reflects her classical background, British/Bengali heritage and her very broad musical tastes. Known for her powerful technique, wide-ranging imagination and exuberant performance, she has become a highly sought-after musician on the international jazz scene. A MOBO Award winner, Mercury Prize nominee and Ivor Novello Impact Award winner, Zoe is a unique presence in the British music industry.

Gathering together a band of outstanding musicians, she’s created The Colour Of Sound: the most ambitious, many-hued, uplifting large-ensemble music of her multi-award winning career. Her choice of collaborators reflects her deep engagement with the diversity of contemporary Britain, and her own explorations of her multi-modal heritage.

Her sound is drenched with originality – a world class artist, composer and performer… Zoe shines as one of Britain’s most powerful compositional voices and important contemporary artists.

Zoe’s music has an energy that makes you want to dance, like on ‘Sweet Jasmine’, with its joyful and gloriously irresistible South African funk rhythm and vibration.
