Uniting of Opposites + Amira Kheir

The worlds of jazz and classical Indian music collide in a new musical venture from Tim Liken, Clem Alford and Ben Hazleton.

Their first album, Ancient Lights, is a melting-pot of sounds that’s been feted by Gilles Peterson.

The trio are joined by Rod Youngs on drums, Idris Rahman (Soothsayers, Arun Gosh) on clarinet and Manjeet Singh Rasiya on tabla.

Uniting of Opposites is supported by Amira Kheir, hailed as the ‘Diva of the Sudanese desert’ (BBC World News).

The Sudanese-Italian singer’s signature sound is inspired by traditional music from her homeland Sudan and anchored in experimental jazz and soul.

It draws on Sudan’s rich musical heritage of distinctive Saharan blues, Nubian and Niloitic music.
