Soweto Kinch Trio
One of the most exciting musicians of his generation, multi award-winning alto-saxophonist, MC and composer Soweto Kinch brings exhilarating, hard hitting jazz and hip hop to EJBF21.
A titan of the UK jazz scene, Kinch has won an array of accolades including two MOBO awards, two Urban Music Awards and a Mercury Prize nomination.
Soweto and his trio will play original compositions from his latest album,‘Black Peril’, a politically and racially-engaged body of work, which reflects on the episodes of civil unrest that erupted across the western world one year on from the Armistice Declaration in 1919, whilst celebrating 100 years of ‘black music’ across the Diaspora.
A set infused with great music, showmanship and sheer energy - join us live in the audience or online from the comfort of your home.
