Beibei Wang is a virtuoso percussionist  in the classical music world, both in China and internationally. She is a international soloist with both Chinese and British music education background, equally at home in traditional, classical, free improvisation, conceptual and visual music performance.

“She is the most talented and promising percussionist in her generation, a witch of music, and I have no doubt that she will be asset to the genre of classical music”. – Tan Dun

Flautist, composer, arranger, bandleader and educator Rowland Sutherland works in ensembles, bands, orchestras and as a soloist, in the classical, jazz, contemporary, non-Western and popular fields. He has played with many artists such as Carla Bley, Evan Parker, Orphy Robinson, and Courtney Pine. “Flautist Rowland Sutherland has a superb sound and technique, and is undoubtedly one of the very best flautists on the British scene.” Time Out.

Multi-instrumentalist Ansuman Biswas was born in Calcutta, India and emigrated to London. He studied Music at Dartington College of Arts. His international creative practice encompasses music, film, live art, installation, writing and theatre. His work is hybrid, inter-disciplinary, and inter-cultural – often taking place between science, art and religion, for instance, or between music, dance and visual art, or between Indian and European sensibilities.

Faradena Afifi plays bowed string instruments, movement and voice. She is a community musician, a busker and folk musician.  She started performing improvised gigs during lockdown 2020.  As a result of jamming online with Maggie Nicols, who introduced her to the Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra and the Improvising Ensemble. From then she performed with GIO, London Improvisers Orchestra and as part of Maggie Nicols’ ‘Creative Liberation Orchestra’ in Stockholm. She plays in duos with Banjo Nick Rambles, Maggie Nicols and Steve Beresford.
