Wednesday 08 October 2014, 7.30pm

Old Fruitmarket, Candleriggs, Glasgow

For many years, the superb French bass player Renaud Garcia-Fons has explored the musical traditions of the Mediterranean, taking sounds and ideas from Spain, Turkey, Morocco and Southern France, fusing them into amazing crossover scores fronted by his own astounding bass playing.

Now he has created a magical score for Lotte Reiniger’s classic silent film The Adventures of Prince Achmed, itself a remarkable East-West fusion. A gorgeous animation inspired by stories from the Arabian Nights, it is full of enchantments and danger: wizards, flying horses, evil genies, princes, princesses…suitable for all the family, but a special treat for lovers of silent films, fantasy and amazing world jazz.
