Arun's leading a large ensemble and working with a couple of schools for the London 2012 Festival. From the web-site:
Leading the Global Sounds project for BT River of Music, he brings together an array of artists with Asian cultural roots for a spectacular performance - including a guest appearance by young instrumentalists from Morpeth School's big band, Urban Playground, based in Tower Hamlets. Together, Arun and Urban Playground have been exploring musical traditions from around the world, in particular South Asia, Japan, and jazz improvisation - drawing inspiration from Arun's improvisational methods and the young instrumentalists enthusiasms. Expect the BT River of Music performance to be jam packed with high energy, pulsating beats and explosive rhythms.
