Their style comes from the bustle of the city and West African and Caribbean influences of Kinoshi’s heritage, blending genres through original compositions and improvisation: a true Black British sound. The line-up features some of London’s most exciting and innovative young jazz musicians including trumpeter Sheila-Maurice-Grey (Kokoroko) and guitarist Shirley Tetteh (Maisha), with special guests just confirmed: Shabaka HutchingsAshley HenryRichie Sievwright and Yahael Camara-Onono.
