namvula

Surely there can be nothing better in the whole wide world than to watch a jazz concert at sunset in a deck chair with a drink and view over London? Back by popular demand, our jazz picnic series explores this year the mesmerising sounds of African jazz, from Afro blues to Afrobeat.

Creating an intrepid new world where folk and urban traditions of her Zambian homeland blend with her Scottish roots and London’s vibrant eclectic music scene, Namvula crosses boundaries, transporting listeners into different worlds whilst staying firmly rooted in African soil. She is backed by a stellar band of some of the UK’s most respected African and jazz musicians, including Mercury nominated bassist Liran Donin and saxophonist Chris Williams, percussionist Mamadou Sarr and guitarist Jack Ross.
