On 19th November, the world-famous classical conductor, Gustavo Dudamel, will blend his talent with a name that will resonate in the minds of all jazz lovers – Herbie Hancock. It is rare for two giants from two different musical fields to come together and collaborate on a stage such as The Barbican in London. With an open-mindedness towards fusion of styles from both, it will be a night that will go down in history as a momentous occasion of musical exploration.

Dudamel has also chosen to begin the concert with two contemporary figureheads of Latin-American classical music, before Hancock and his quartet join him on stage. The quartet consists of James Genus on bass, Lionel Loueke on guitar and Justin Tyson on drums. Both sets will also be accompanied by the LA Philharmonic, in order to round off the line-up and make sure that the event is unmissable for both jazz and classical music fans alike.
