SUNDAY 30TH JUNE – LINE UP
With Jungle Brown, Jack Foster (DJ), Clara Serra López and MA
Jungle Brown – presented by Lyrix Organix
Jungle Brown drop their Tribe Called Quest-esque sound with future rap, adorned with a smooth sax line from UK jazz all-star, Ayo Yung Afrika Pyoneer, and backing vocals from Jungle Brown’s own producer, Tony Bones.
Clara Serra López
Clara Serra López is a vocalist, composer and arranger based in London. Having always loved and been inspired by the communication and improvisation involved in jazz groups, Clara’s project brings together some of the finest musicians in London to develop her musical ideas. Together, they provide a creatively collaborative environment and a vehicle for individual expression. Her music is inspired by grooves from Chicago to Havana, melodies from Erykah Badu to Sílvia Pérez Cruz and sounds from jazz to West-African music, bringing you body-moving rhythm, flowing lines, raw lyrics and improvisation.
From spacey melodies to intense energy, “Ma” is the Japanese symbol ”間” described as “an emptiness full of possibilities, like a promise yet to be fulfilled”. They mix influences from jazz to hip-hop, sprinkled with some drum and bass rhythms and a rock state of mind to create a unique sound.
Spinning: Jack Foster from Do 4 Love
Jack is the curator and creator of Do 4 Love and record seller at Eldica Records. Alongside Do 4 Love Jack also runs Mechanix, a party born out of a mechanics garage in North East London.
As London Jazz makes its way out into the world, The Cockpit wants to continue giving support to artists of all kinds who respond to this exciting new sound, wholly owned by the Londoners that make it.
Join the Emergence: We are inviting musicians, dance and spoken word artists to get involved. As time goes on, we want to provide an opportunity for London Jazz to make connections, artistic, political or literary as well as purely musical wherever and with whoever it chooses to make them.
Curated by Lyle Barton and Rachel Jackson
