Following the Government announcement on Mon 22 Feb 2021 all Bristol Beacon Presents events up until 17 May 2021 are being rescheduled or cancelled. We are currently working hard to reschedule this event and will be contacting customers when a new date is confirmed, or if the event has to cancel.
Led by alto saxophonist and composer Cassie Kinoshi, Mercury Award-nominated ten-piece SEED ensemble create experimental, genre-bending grooves that incorporate inner-city London jazz and West African and Caribbean influenced beats.
Their debut album Driftglass, released earlier this year, features track ‘Afronaut (feat. XANA)’ which went on to win at the Ivors Academy Awards for Jazz Composition for Large Ensemble.
With a sound that has critics declaring that “nothing like this has happened before in British jazz” (All About Jazz), these “culturally sharp-eared newcomers” (Guardian) merge improvisation and performance to craft compositions that evolve, grow, ebb and flow over time.
This is a standing show in Bristol Beacon Foyer, Trenchard St, Bristol BS1 5AR
