MOBO-winning, singer Zara McFarlane returns with songs from her head-turning album “Arise” released on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Records. She blends the deep spiritual jazz of Pharoah Sanders with dub and reggae whilst her Nina Simone and Cassandra Wilson connections are audible. “The most interesting jazz singer to appear in years” (The Telegraph), “she’s graduated from skilful diffidence to magnetic eloquence and complete ease with an audience” (The Guardian).
