Singer songwriter Fini Bearman, ‘unsurpassed beauty’ (Jazzwise,) and pianist and composer Tom Hewson, ‘exhilarating’ (Jazzwise) present a new collection of songs inspired by the world of Salman Rushdie’s award winning work of magical realism, Midnight’s Children. As the music unfolds, we hear characters’ stories emerge, reimagined and transformed taking the form of songs, instrumental movements and moments of spoken/sung word improvisations. They will be joined for this special occasion by Tom Herbert on bass, Adriano Adewale on percussion and Zosia Jagodzinska on cello.
