Having performed with everyone from Kiko Bun to Congo Natty to Yussef Kamaal and as an integral part of jazz ensemble, Nérija, and Maisha – Nubya Garcia has become a household name on the London scene. She brings her own style, perspective and sound to her playing that encapsulates the diverse influences that have defined the new wave of jazz-influenced sounds sweeping across the UK today.
Nubya fearlessly threw herself head first into her debut recording with a clear vision of what she wanted; and was meticulous in her pursuit of her sound. Enlisting the help of fellow musical comrades from an exciting new wave of London-based talent, Nubya tapped into well-seasoned, harmonious relationships with players that know and understand her – and this joyful union radiates through her compositions.
Recently awarded the Steve Reid Foundation prize that has seen the likes of Sarathy Korwar and Moses Boyd being mentored by Floating Points and Four Tet – this will be her chance to delve into writing and gigging with live electronics.
Nubya has a setup as a quartet and her band is made up of some of the best players coming out of the UK today.
SUPPORT tonight on the early show comes from Tomorrow’s Warriors StringTing
From the same proving ground as Nubya and fellow award-winning artists Binker & Moses, Shabaka Hutchings, Eska, Denys Baptiste, Nerija and Ezra Collective, StringTing is another flagship ensemble from Tomorrow’s Warriors, the celebrated hothouse for young jazz talent in the UK. Mentored by jazz double bassist and Tomorrow’s Warriors artistic director, Gary Crosby OBE, the band plays a wide range of jazz repertoire and has worked with the likes of Steve Williamson, Brinsley Forde, and Jazz Jamaica All Stars. Blazing a wide trail for women and strings in jazz, StringTing’s players are core players in Tomorrow’s Warriors’ acclaimed Nu Civilisation Orchestra and are ones to watch as they begin to make an indelible mark on the London jazz scene.
Rhiannon Dimond – violin, Barbara Bartz - violin, Julia Vaughan - viola, Miranda Lewis - cello
