A vibrant and highly individual pianist and composer, Zoe Rahman’s style is deeply rooted in jazz yet it reflects her classical background, British/Bengali heritage and her very broad musical taste. Known for her powerful technique, wide-ranging imagination and exuberant performance, she has become a highly sought-after musician, working most recently with the likes of George Mraz, Courtney Pine and Jerry Dammers’ Spatial AKA Orchestra.  

Zoe studied classical Piano at the Royal Academy of Music, took a music degree at Oxford University and then won a scholarship to study jazz performance at Berklee College of Music, Boston. She has released a series of highly acclaimed albums including collaborations with her brother Idris Rahman.

A MOBO Award winner, Mercury Prize nominee, Jazz FM Award nominee and British Jazz Award winner, Zoe has established herself as a unique presence in the British music industry as a featured artist on many TV and radio programmes and has also played at numerous international jazz festivals.

Described in The Observer as a ” remarkable pianist by any standard” this is a rare opportunity to hear one of the UK’s most gifted jazz pianists in an intimate solo piano setting.
