Fini Bearman & Tom Hewson’s Midnight’s Children

Fini Bearman – voice, composition

Tom Hewson – piano, composition

Zosia Jagodzinska – cello, vocals

Tom Herbert – bass Adriano Adewale – percussion

 

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.

“The incredible improvised poetry of Fini Bearman” (Bandcamp)

“Catchy melodies, strong harmonic structures and poetic lyricism… She’s a true jazz artist” (Londonjazznews.com) “intelligence, imagination and very human warmth” (The Jazzmann)
