Soweto Kinch Quartet


Soweto Kinch Quartet image

One of the most exciting musicians of his generation, multi award-winning alto-saxophonist, MC and composer Soweto Kinch has a unique approach: super exciting, hard hitting jazz, wrapped up in a rap/hip-hop fusion, and a warmth personality that draws audiences into a special relationship. His scalding hot, hard bop grooves; racing freestyle lyrics, hip-hop beats, rap and jazz riffs, have won him an unprecedented array of accolades including two MOBO awards, two Urban Music Awards and a Mercury Prize nomination…After a packed out show last year, Soweto is back with a special Quartet, featuring American pianist Eric Lewis, A.K.A. ELEW. Tonight, Soweto plays music from his latest concept album “Nonagram” as well as new unreleased original material. A set infused with great music, showmanship and sheer energy. 

“A real tour de force” (The Guardian)”.
