Helen Anahita Wilson flooded The Bull's Head, Barnes with music that softened every fibre of the legendary jazz venue. A world of hard bop and bold brass was swept away in a night of candlelit discoveries. Flickering smiles danced across the faces in the crowd for it was a performance of sensitivity that encouraged a sense of beauty and reflection. Wilson repertoire included music by Bill Evans, Chick Corea, Stephen Montague, Peter Feuchtwanger and Helen Anahita herself.

"I make late night, low light music....music that is rich and sensual....intimate and tender also."

Helen Anahita Wilson
Helen Anahita Wilson is a pianist, composer, multi-instrumentalist and musical explorer based in Brighton, UK and performing multi-sensory, post-genre concerts across the world. She likes to build and sculpt sonic space. And I like to colour it, be it by flooding space with sound and resonance or just by hearing one tiny drop of the most delicate beauty being suspended.

In exploring music from across the world Wilson draws inspiration from many Asian traditions, from jazz and from her own background as a Western classical musician. She have performed at major venues and festivals across the world and broadcast on BBC Radio 3. She studied performance and composition at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Guildhall School of Music and Drama London, the University of Sussex and SOAS, University of London. 

My debut solo album 'BHOOMA' is due for release in 2018.
