Led by the fiery vision of UK saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings, the award-winning Sons of Kemet is a bold, iconoclastic mix of tenor sax, tuba, and double drum kit that’s “uniquely positioned to lead another breakthrough jazz movement, one rooted far from the music’s American birthplace” (Rolling Stone). Gritty and hypnotic interlocking rhythms frame colourful horn interplay, bringing Sons of Kemet’s genre-defying power soca/rock/jazz Afrofuturist hybrid to life through incendiary live sets. “Hooky horns and rapturously hip double-drumming” (The Guardian) with Theon Cross tuba and drummers Tom Skinner (Mulatu Astatke), and Eddie Hick (Roots Manuva).
