London is bustling with young multidisciplinary musicians and artists that are refusing to embrace the conventions of genre and style. At the forefront of this musical proliferation is jazz. The musicians responsible draw their influences from a range of artists, places, and eras to weave together a new narrative that embodies the richness of London’s multicultural diversity.
The revised flows of London jazz are historically referential and newly liberated. They tell the stories, aspirations, struggles, hopes, grief and triumphs of a rising generation of urban lives — in new tempos, eclectic voice, electronic, and instrumental forms.
Join us as we explore how the complex language of jazz informs and represents society, and its relevance to other creative practices.
