“Always exciting, playful, muscular and a tiny bit unhinged, that’s what I love about Zoe Rahman” - Jamie Cullum (BBC Radio 2)

"Classy pianist Zoe Rahman cranks up the McCoy Tyner-like energy at every turn" - John Fordham (Guardian)

Zoe’s music is deep rooted in jazz, but also reflects her classical training and her British/Bengali heritage. The MOBO winner’s sensational trio always play with a passion and enjoyment that draws audiences in to Zoe’s thrilling musical world. It’s a place full of warmth, where you’re likely to encounter anything from Thelonious Monk to Balkan beats; from sunny Latin sounds, to township South African hymns.
