Point Blank Mastered

Global approaches to rhythm - from Cuban Clave to South Asian Tihai's

Join us for an expert masterclass on Global approaches to rhythm - from Cuban Clave to South Asian Tihai's. We'll be joined by Kishon Khan, Professor of Practice (Music) at SOAS University of London as he takes us through different polyrythmic approaches to using syncopation within a groove.

Kishon is an award-winning pianist, composer, arranger and producer, born in Bangladesh, but brought up in London. HeKishon Khan was classically trained from the age of 4, and turned to jazz in his teens. Since then, he has established himself as a formidable bandleader, as well as one of London’s in-demand session pianists. He is part of a community of critically-acclaimed musicians, focused on playing different traditional styles authentically, but also making a name for himself as an innovative composer and arranger.

His versatility is reflected in the vast array of artists he has collaborated with, from around the globe and across genres, including legends such as Hugh Masekela and Tony Allen. Contemporary collaborations include Soothsayers (Afro Dub) and Gilles Peterson’s Havana Cultura (UK/Cuba).
