A late addition to the Tuned In London programme at Sands Films, Rotherhithe (2 mins from the station):

Jason Carter’s musical depth & extraordinary style have left an indelible impact around the globe. Touring with his inimitable fusion of world music & classical styles, Jason is a harp-guitarist and composer of the highest calibre. Prolific & exceptionally creative, he continually produces captivating and alluring music that is played with humility, passion and exquisite flair. He has just launched his 18th album, “Seeking The Divine".

He has performed in almost 100 countries and travelled over a million miles – making music in such diverse locations as Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, North Korea, Pakistan, and the Gulf States. Garnering a reputation as an ambassador for peace and intercultural dialogue by using music to open doors for communication, Jason has received honours and awards for these efforts and also support from UNESCO, The United Nations, and the British Government.

Jason’s ability to connect with his audience is unparalleled and offers a moving, thought-provoking and unexpectedly comforting experience.

Though working primarily as a solo musician, Jason regularly collaborates with other musicians and orchestras. He has played with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, the Novosibirsk Orchestra, the Nanjing Chinese Orchestra, New Irish Orchestra, and countless other musicians from around the world. His work can be found on compilations with artists such as Anoushka Shankar, Barbara Streisand, Zakir Hussain, John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Joe Satriani, Steve Morse, Allan Holdsworth, John Scofield, Jeff Beck, Larry Coryell, Hariprasad Chaurasia, Ozzy Osbourne, Trey Gunn (King Crimson), Huong Thanh (Vietnamese folk singer), Yuuka Nanri (Japan), and Trilok Gurtu.

Jason is also working on a multi-media documentary about the music and culture of the pearl divers of United Arab Emirates — amazing individuals whose stories are almost lost to history.

“Jason helps to build much needed relationships across borders that the technological forces driving globalization could never achieve.” – Neville McBain, British Council, Iran.
