We are excited to team up with Jazz re:freshed once again to present three acts who will be taking the scene by storm in 2020.
Ife Ogunjobi is the golden boy of UK improvised music. Growing up in South East London, his surroundings have enriched his music with various genres such as Jazz, Afrobeat and Hip-hop. Establishing his name as an artist has been made all the more successful following his experiences playing alongside the likes of Solange Knowles, Jon Cleary and UK-based acts such as Dele Sosimi and Moses Boyd.
Golden Mean is the brand new band formed by Tom Driessler of Yussef Kamaal and Luke Wynter of Nubiyan Twist. Expect trippy beats, synths, catchy hooks, solos, and uptempo grooves.
Kokoroko trombonist Richie is another driving force in the current crop of stars taking the country by storm. The hornlines, which are the calling card of the group’s international success, will be on full display alongside her undeniable vocal talent as Richie establishes her new band ahead of a breakout year.
