Sons of Kemet MOBO award-winners Sons of Kemet – kinetic, earth-shaking and with an electrifying live performance, the band features four of the UK jazz scene’s brightest stars, culminating in a revolutionary mix of music that spans jazz, rock, dub and Caribbean folk.

Led by saxophonist, clarinettist, composer and ‘BBC New Generation Artist’ Shabaka Hutchings, Sons of Kemet features Theon Cross on tuba and both Seb Rochford (Polar Bear, Babyshambles) and Tom Skinner (Melt Yourself Down, Mulatu Astatke) on drums.

Hypnotic double drum rhythms frame the colourful interplay of saxophone, clarinet and tuba as the original compositions are brought to life by four fiercely creative musicians.
