LIVE! is a coming together of two local institutions to provide something new for the community; real live experiences from the best local and international players. Rhythm Section and Peckham Chamber Orchestra (PCO) join forces to present a debut concert of 3 acts which span jazz, classical, hip hop and psychedelic rock from a positively afro-futurist perspective.
The first LIVE! event presents South Africa’s “most important band”, The Brother Moves On (TMBO)- featuring Shabaka Hutchings – MOBO award winning saxophonist with Sons of Kemet alongside Hannah C. Jones on theremin.
The Brother Moves On released their fourth studio album ‘Shiyanomayini’ in October 2015. ‘Shiyanomayini’ is the beginning of the collective’s new project, ‘Black Tax’ which will see TBMO release a track a month for the next 9 months.
Hannah, who will be hosting the event alongside Bradley, is a multi-instrumentalist, artist and conductor of the Peckham Chamber Orchestra.
The Yussef Kamaall Trio is new project of Henry Wu (keys) and Yussef Dayes (drums) featuring Tom Driessler on Bass. The Trio caused a stir after their headline slot at Jazz Refreshed at the Festival Hall and have since played a sold out show at Ronnie Scott’s. The Trio, who regularly collaborate with 22a head honcho Tenderlonious on sax, have also secured a coveted spot at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide awards in January 2016. This is a special chance to see the group in an intimate, local setting, before they go stratospheric.
Duval Timothy, perhaps better known as a published author, artist and chef of the pioneering groundnut dinner collective, is also a pianist, whose solo works have caught the attention of a number of key tastemakers in the city. We welcome the south-east London native here at LIVE! for his debut solo performance.
TICKETS ARE £10 AND ONLY AVAILABLE IN ADVANCE.
