London-based saxophonist and composer, Nubya Garcia, is one of the leading forces behind the resurgence of jazz-influenced sounds in the UK.
Garcia’s brand of afro-tinged jazz has made her a key component in a string of new and established groups: from work with MOBO Award-winning drummer, Moses Boyd, legendary jungle producer and toaster, Congo Natty, through to her own works as part of six-piece, Maisha, and the Nerija septet.
Spring 2017 will see her release her first solo project via forward-thinking imprint, Jazz Refreshed. The project — which explores the common ground between progressive jazz, hip hop and soulful, groove led rhythms — is set to cement her credentials as one of hardest working ladies in UK music.
On Friday 31 March, catch the amazing Zara McFarlane Band feat. Nubya Garcia and MC Earl Zinger LIVE at the #SingJazz2017 Main Stage alongside superstar DJ Gilles Peterson!
