Barnaby Keen band
Barnaby Keen is a singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist whose music has a unique and captivating sound. He draws inspiration from Brazilian music, 1970’s psychedelia, folk and experimental electronic sounds. On stage Keen fronts the band with a sure hand and a charismatic flair and is backed by supremely talented and creative musicians including; masterful synth player Sam Crowe, the prodigious ECM recording artist Fred Thomas on Bass and sought-after London drummer Jake Long (Maisha, Gary Bartz). ‘Stunning music’ - Simon Raymonde, Bella Union
´I’m smitten’ - Tom Ravenscroft, BBC6 Music
Speaker, composer and virtuoso of the qanun: disseminating peace through the healing power of music. Born and raised in Damascus, Syria, now based in the UK, Maya Youssef is hailed as ‘queen of the qanun,’ the 78-stringed Middle Eastern plucked zither. Maya’s intense and thoughtful music is rooted in the Arabic classical tradition but forges pathways into jazz, Western classical and Latin styles. It explores the emotional and healing qualities of music. For her, the act of playing music is the opposite of death and destruction; it is a life- and hope-affirming act and an antidote to what is happening, not only in Syria, but in the whole world. Her highly-acclaimed debut album Syrian Dreams, produced by the legendary Joe Boyd, led to many awards and performances on prestigious stages such as the BBC Proms and WOMAD and recognition from the British government of her status as an exceptional artistic talent.
Storyteller Clare Murphy is celebrated internationally for her physical dynamism, wit and warmth, Clare brings the ancient art of story firmly into the contemporary world. She is also fast becoming a Jaminaround favourite, returning for what will be her third time. Born in Dublin, Clare has lived and worked in Spain and America and now resides in Bristol UK. For Jaminaround 2022 part 1, Clare will be bringing her piece ‘The King Of Lies’. A beautiful country is at the mercy of a lie-obsessed king as he pits his wits against a fool in a self-made lying competition. Sound familiar? Blending reportage and folklore to tell a story that underlines the power of fakery, this performance is a dynamic adaptation of Damascus Nights, by exiled Syrian writer Rafik Schami.
London-based French composer, performer and DIY producer Will Serfass aka Roscius combines live looping with percussion, sampling and lyric-less vocals to create unique and absorbing improvised soundscape experiments. He tours the world collecting handmade music instruments from West African drums to South American shakers, Asian gongs, Armenian tambourins, mini Japanese analog keyboards and most recently a full chromatic balafon made in Burkina Faso.
