Interplay on the Studio Theatre stage at Warwick Arts Centre – double bill with Sonrisa.

Lovers of globally-inspired world music and jazz are in for a special night at Warwick Arts Centre, when two of the region’s best bands join forces. Sonrisa brings its joyous blend of mainly Latin rhythms while Interplay casts its net a little wider, taking in African and Indian sounds as well as expressive modern jazz. Despite their musical common ground this will be the first time the two bands have appeared together.

Interplay and Sonrisa are both well established across the Midlands, playing to concert and festival audiences, in clubs and on rural touring circuits for several years. Each band released an album last year too. ‘Global’, on the part of Interplay, was hailed by Gilles Peterson as a ‘beautiful record’, while Sonrisa’s ‘Taste Of Latin’ has resulted in the band being taken up by Tom Robinson for BBC Introducing on 6Music.

Despite their successes to date neither band has yet reached ‘legendary’ status. Therefore they are being presented on the ‘Under The Radar’ strand, through which the Arts Centre gives exposure to artists thought deserving of a wider audience.

The evening promises an uplifting musical journey infused with different cultures, with rhythmic excitement and instrumental creativity to the fore.
