29.10.2020: Nubya Garcia, live & online event, The Barbican Centre
A rising star from the exciting London jazz movement, saxophonist, composer and bandleader Nubya Garcia performs from her energetic, successful debut album, SOURCE.
Nubya’s hypnotic, freeflow jazz takes its influences from across the Caribbean and Latin America, drawing deeply from her family’s roots. Dub reggae, cumbia, afrobeat and neo-soul can all clearly be heard alongside more traditional jazz rhythms.
Her debut album SOURCE is a dynamic and exploratory collection that has positioned her as one of the most exciting artists in the UK. Garcia had gained critical acclaim ahead of her solo release with her collectives Maisha and Nérija, and through frequent collaborations with prominent jazz musicians from the UK and abroad.
