Seun Kuti hits London
On Nov 23rd at The Forum in London, Soundcrash is bringing to you a celebration of live Jazz in its many variants which is not to be missed; from Seun Kuti’s infectious and Afrobeat to Jazzanova’s love affair with electronica and Matthew Halsall’s deep spiritual jazz.
With the mighty From Africa With Fury: Rise, Seun Anikulapo Kuti heads up Egypt 80, the extraordinary combo first fronted by his father, the legendary Fela Kuti. The band’s explosive power, fraught with the scorching rhythms and kinetic funk energy has rightfully earned the group worldwide acclaim as, in the words of Brian Eno, some of the “biggest, wildest, livest music on the planet.”
The Jazzanova collective belongs to a small, worldwide group of incredibly influential innovators of dancefloor, jazz, broken beat, funk and soul. Their signature sounds mix and match genres as wide ranging as the hip hop that remains their roots, Brazilian samba and the ever elegant and precise German techno. Jazzanova will be performing live with their 9 piece band and the elegant vocal tones of Paul Randolph
Trumpeter, bandleader and occasional DJ Matthew Halsall‘s expressive tone is inspired by the transcendental, modal jazz of John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders and his albums have drawn accolades from Gilles Peterson, Jamie Cullum and BBC Music.
This will be a top night, as a line-up brimming with talent will get you moving. Score your tickets today and be a part of the awesomeness.
