How to capture the many roles of Jamila Woods? She’s a teacher, a mentor, a poet and singer, a student of history, a collagist, a space-maker.
Born in Chicago, where she currently resides, Woods has worked with globally known musicians such as Chance the Rapper and Macklemore, and her poetic upbringing through groups like YCA has not only contributed to the lyrical deftness of her music, it has also inspired her to transform spaces of performance into spaces of connectivity.
With debut album HEAVN drawing wide critical acclaim, we couldn’t be happier to welcome her to the Jazz Cafe for her debut London show.
Opening the show will be 22a Music affiliated producer Reginald Omas Mamode IV.
