Soweto Kinch Quartet at RNCM
Soweto Kinch is a multi award-winning saxophonist, MC and composer specialising in a trademark style of jazz, rap and spoken word unlike that of any other performer in the world. Revered among both musicians and rappers alike, he has amassed two MOBO Awards, a BBC Rising Star and Jazz Instrumentalist Award, a nomination for the Mercury Award and he hosts his own weekly show on BBC Radio 3, Jazz Planet.
Tonight he’ll be showcasing his latest album Nonagram in quartet format (sax/vocals, drums, bass and piano). This body of work is inspired by maths and geometry but grounded by groove and soul. So expect scalding hot, hard bop, jazz/hip-hop grooves spiced with free-flowing fiery lyrics like you’ve never heard before…
