Arun Ghosh commissioned by Freedom Festival

Arun Ghosh commissioned by Freedom Festival

British-Asian clarinetist and composer Arun Ghosh presents a new work for Wind Orchestra and Percussion.

Bringing together forces of young Northern musicians alongside professional players, Ambhas is a large-scale performance piece with an ancient Euro-Scando tribal aesthetic.

Ambhas, a Sanskrit word for water, and a Celtic word meaning ‘well’ or ‘good’, is the origin of the name of the River Humber.

Evoking the spirit of the Vikings and water travellers, Ambhas re-imagines ancient journey rituals and beliefs, expressing our metaphysical relationships to rivers, the sea, and celestial waters.
