Award winning alto-saxophonist, composer, poet, producer and MC Soweto Kinch returns with a brand new studio album and live tour, The Black Peril.  A politically and racially-engaged body of work, historican inspiration for the record can be traced to the episodes of civil unrest that erupted across the western world throughout 1919 - one year on from the Armistice Declaration.  What should have been a moment of triumph and social cohesion, disintegrated into violent disorder and racial conflict.  From Liverpool to Chicago, Glasgow and Cardiff to South Shields and Jamaica: the 'Red Summer' saw cities across the US and UK city set ablaze with rioting.

“It’s a clever and entertaining juxtaposition of idioms that kicks pure Jazz and authentic rap into a brave new world.”       The Guardian

“Mr Kinch demonstrates what England has to teach [the USA] about narrative Hip-Hop. Don’t sleep on Mr Kinch”     The New York Times


Award winning alto-saxophonist and MC Soweto Kinch is one of the most exciting and versatile young musicians in both the British jazz and hip hop scenes. Undoubtedly, one of the few artists in either genre with a degree in Modern History from Oxford University he has amassed an impressive list of accolades and awards on both sides of the Atlantic – including a Mercury Music Prize nomination, two UMA Awards and a MOBO for best Jazz Act in 2003. In October 2007, he won his second MOBO Award, at the O2 Arena, London where he was announced as the winner in the Best Jazz Act category- fending off stiff competition from the likes of Wynton Marsalis.


His skills as a hip hop MC and producer have also garnered him recognition in the urban music world: having supported the likes of KRS ONE, Dwele and TY, and being championed by the likes of Mos Def, Rodney P and BBC 1-Xtra’s Twin B.

Kinch’s projects also extend beyond recorded albums. Writing the score for Jonzi D’s Hip Hop Theatre production Markus the Sadist (2010), and Sampad’s In The Further Soil (2010), a dance-theatre. Kinch also wrote and acted in the latter piece, which toured throughout India for a month.
